It is the nature of Osage Orange wood to darken ever so slightly over time, giving way to the undertones of a slightly orangish hue. It’s one of the beauties of this type of wood. No worries however, although subtle, the slight color shift is miniscule and will always possess that yellowish-orange hue. Only darkens so much. It’s just outstanding wood.
Fixed o-ring on insert to ensure a snug fit and secure retention. Great balance and feel in hand. Measuring 4-1/8″
