Padauk (pah-DUKE) is a West African hardwood sometimes called Vermillion for the red-orange color of the heartwood when freshly cut. Strips of this color can be seen in the body of these hammers. Keeping them out of the sunlight will prolong the color of the Padauk, but all exotic hardwoods darken slightly with age.
