Haragiri, Sen-no-ki, Sen – Japan
As natural-colored veneer for all bright and by pores-rings structured timber, like bright European Oak, European Ash, bright smooth-leaved Elm (Ulmus thomasii) and Cherry but also for bright softwoods, like Whitewood and Hemlock; in stained form for anonym style-timber.
East Asia: Japan, mainly Hokkaido; Korea; China, Manchuria to Jangsekiang; In Europe isolate cultured as parktree.
The sapwood and the heartwood are hardly distinguishable. The wood is uniform colored whitely to yellowish brown. In fresh situation the wood has a sharp, unpleasant smell, which gets lost by drying. But by the way it is flavourless. In structure Sen is in terms of color similar to white Ash or very bright smooth-leaved-Elm. Rays emerge as fine mirrors, whereby the wood appears decorative. The texture is medium-rough, but constant, the structure is usually straight grained. The direction of grain is without strong deviations; isolated with light latch-growth or flat wavy.
