Resin-Ivory+S™ Top grade Imitation ivory for inlays. Resin-Ivory™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever. This material comes in two grades. Both are of the same high quality but with different grain features.
This offering is for the +S grain which has an ivory grain look to the material. The regular Resin-Ivory™ has a nice grain that has more of a zebra line look to the grain.
Both grades are very attractive and both grades have equal strength. The difference is strictly in the appearance. We slab this stock in-house from bar stock because the sheet stock produced by the factory is not attractive.
This material flouresces under a black light so customs agents will be able to discern it from real ivory without a problem.
We cut the slabs from bar stock so the slabs have a cut surface on both sides. This material is ideal for inlay stock but should not be purchased for knife handles or similar applications where very consistant thickness and a smooth surface is needed.
