*What makes "Carbonized Action Bamboo" different than the Option 2 Bamboo?
It's a treated material, as opposed to natural. The bamboo has been heated to caramelize the compounds within, giving it the amber or gold color instead of vibrant white-yellow. It's also been laminated and pressure treated, similar to the popular maple actionwood laminate. While no longer as lightweight as natural bamboo, the material is a tougher and more consistent through its structure. As a result, it makes for an excellent core wood.
