    I will post a picture of it tonight.
    Told that this a rare Haydel Call. It is tri colored Cocobola Wood with brass and it has the insert of the variable tone.
    Was told they made very few of these. Will take photos and post in for sale.
    Any thoughts on pricing? See nothing like it on ebay.
    THANKS.

    Is the insert cocabola, cause the barrel looks laminate?

    Baydog, thanks I am going to ask what is laminate wood? Like particle board/strand board? To make the tiger stripe?
    Just asking I have no idea, I bought it from the Haydel's years back and it was signed by Eli Haydel but signature came off inside of bag I had it in. They said it was cocabola.
    He signed with a gold sharpie on the barrel. THANKS

    Wood is what many other call makers refer to as Diamondwood. While not "rare" in the call making world, it may be in that particular model of call. Sorry, I've no idea of value though.

    Am I mistaken in thinking "diamond wood" just a marketing way of saying stained laminate?

    Biggar, plywood would be an example of a laminated wood. Am surprised they would have called that barrel, which appears a laminate, cocobola instead of diamond wood. But you could probably learn more about the call and its relative rarity by asking Rod or Kelly at the Haydel shop than us...

    This often comes up on knife making forums.
    "Dymondwood" is the tradename for a product that was produced by Rutland Plywood. Essentially, it is a lamination of very thin veneers, usually birch, impregnated with a resin. The designation Walnut, Cocobolo, etc refers to the color of stain used, not the species of wood. It is a very stable product.

    When used in knife handles you dont see as many layers and it would look more like cocobola, on a duck call it just looks like stripes.
