Can you identify this wood?

This is the handrail on a staircase that I built for the boy so he can brush his teeth.

The vertical piece looks like East Indian rosewood:

but rail pic is unfocused and I can't see the grain

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

You'll have better luck getting an answer if you post a focused pic

They have only small stock. I'd like some 4/4 or even 8/4 if I could find it.
