Resin-Ivory™ Regular grade Imitation ivory for knife handles. Resin-Ivory™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever.
One block measuring 1 1/8" by 1.25" by 3" long. The Randall chart lists this size for # 25 handle center piece. Check with the Randall shop to order the right size block for your knife.
This block is of Resin-Ivory™ material. This regular resin ivory material looks and works just like real ivory. The +S grade has a more vivid grain throughout the block and it 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. For +S material and for more sizes see our page on the main menu page showing Randall Knife Blocks.
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. 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!
