Resin-Ivory+S™ Imitation ivory for bagpipe fittings. Resin-Ivory+S™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever. Arvorin and other alternative ivories are made as a spun polyester but Resin Ivory™ is a resin based material that has greater strength and better properties for bagpipe fittings. The spun polyesters will chip and shatter easily with a resulting glassy area seen. Resin Ivory™ is much more like real ivory where it takes a good deal more effort to chip the material.
This Resin-Ivory+S™ S grade is has the Shreger lines in the end grain - hence the +S designation. The Shreger lines are those forming the herringbone pattern as seen in the end grain view of real ivory. This material flouresces a rich purple under a black light so customs agents will be able to discern it from real ivory without a problem.
