This is some Jet Black Ebony which I bought back in 1999; it's real Gabon Ebony and is totally Jet Black. This is the last of this load, it was great stuff that you can't get today.
Anyway.... there are 8 sticks that are 14" long and 3 that are 18" long and one block. This deal is a no-brainer!
The one stick with the crack - the crack only runs about 1.5" so 12.5" of the stick is fine.
