Resin-Ivory™ "Sheet" Grade Imitation ivory for knife handle scales. Resin-Ivory™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever.
This page features Resin-Ivory™ sheet grade slabs not the Resin-Ivory™ R grade nor the Resin-Ivory+S™ S grade slabs. The Resin-Ivory™ sheet grade is made in sheets and is the least expensive of the three grades. It has a unique and attractive grain. The R grade has grain that looks more like real ivory and the S grade looks just like real ivory. The S grade slabs have a quarter sawn ivory grain as opposed to the R grade Resin Ivory slabs that have a wave grain.
This material works just like real ivory with conventional tools and takes a high polish by buffing with white jewelers rouge on cloth or felt wheels/pads. One needs only sand with 400 grit wet/dry paper and then take it to a buffing wheel. Glues to wood with white glue and to other materials with super glue or epoxy. This material is also the best imitation ivory we have scrimshawed. There is no squishiness when scriming and there is no bleeding of the ink into unwanted areas as seen on other imitation ivories. It works like ivory, polishes like ivory and scrims like ivory!
