Bamboo is a natural, sustainable product, but not all bamboo is the same. We led the industry in carrying only first-cut bamboo, which has a more elastic structure and is sturdier and longer-lasting than subsequent cuts. Here's how it works:
Let's say that, in the field, a 15-foot length of bamboo is harvested. From this 15-foot length, we need an 8-foot finished cane. The 8-foot section is taken from the more flexible, sturdier section of cane. That's first-cut bamboo. The remaining 7 feet of the cane is then offered as second-cut bamboo. If the second piece is cut to a new size, you would create third-cut bamboo and so on. This later-cut bamboo is sometimes sold cheaply, because it has fibrous walls and much less flexibility. Second-cut bamboo will be more likely to snap or split in the field. When you are comparing bamboo pricing, be sure to ask which cutting you are getting. If it is not first-cut bamboo, be aware that you are sacrificing quality and probably will be disappointed. With A.M. Leonard, you will only get the best: First-Cut!
