Dissagree. Very, very soft (and dangerous, by the way).
I work with it a lot. You can whittle it with a knife. You can press down hard and leave a fingernail inprint in it when raw. Now, as it ages it gets harder (most woods do). But compared to mahog, it is soft. I am not saying it is as soft as pine, but close. Mahgonny, on the other hand, is at least as tough as oak and maybe tougher.
Just my opinion, PDP.
