LOL if your unfamiliar, you may second guess your choice when you see the price of that stuff.  :)

Snake wood also cracks very easily. Your best option would be to incorporate snakewood into the pot and make a snakewood striker. Even though I would like to see a snakewood pot.

West Penn Hardwoods sells it but I would take stumpjumper's post as a serious warning.

Snakewood looks great and finishes like glass.  Those are only two pros.  Snakewood has many more cons.
High cost, non stable, cracks easily, and most importantly it is probably the highest hazardous hardwood.
When working with this one do not let the dust touch your bare skin anywhere or breathe any fine dust.
Warning!  After 30 years of cutting and using hundreds of domestic and imported different toxic woods I was overtaken by this wood.  It broke down my immune system.  It took over a year of doctor's care and treatment to ease up the bad reaction I had from Snakewood.  I now break out easily from just about any type of wood I make calls from.
