Resin-Ivory™ 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 regular grain which we designate as "R" for regular grade Resin-Ivory™ whereas the grade with more of an ivory look we designate as Resin-Ivory™+S.
In slab form this Resin-Ivory™has an attractive grain that has a sweep to it that resembles zebra stripes whereas the +S grade has a striped grain that looks like real ivory. 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.
