Mangkono - The hardest of the Philippine hardwood species



I was looking around in the mall and saw a nice furniture made of mangkono wood.  The salesman told me it's the toughest wood in the Philippines.  So, I searched it in the internet and this is what I found:

If you still have the Abyz tactical knife, the handle is made of magkono. I used to have a pair given to me by my wife's cousin in Butuan. The machinist had trouble shaping it into a garrote, I was charged more than twice the normal price. i later gave it away to two very close friends.

Oh. I didn't notice it was mangkono. Will take a look at it again.
The knife is still with me. ;)
Is it also nice when used as a garrote?
