There are minor heart splits or burrs and colour tone is more uniform and less varied than Rustic grade and Character grade. Knots that are present are small, approximately 10 mm or less in size.

Viewed in a room environment, both colour and pattern appear even. Any colour or texture variations between the boards has been deemed by Orlestone staff to be suitable for our Prime grade oak flooring.
