Resin-Ivory™ R grade (regular grade) Imitation ivory for cue stick inlays. Resin-Ivory™ is the highest quality imitation ivory we have seen,worked or handled - ever. This material comes in two grades - "R" for regular and +S for the Shreger grade. Both are of the same high quality but with different grain features.
In the photo you see to the left, the right most piece is regular "R" grade Resin-Ivory™ and the left most piece is Resin-Ivory+S™ grade.
In slab form the Resin-Ivory™has an attractive grain that has a sweep to it that has a zebra stripe pattern whereas the +S grade has a striped grain that looks like quarter sawn 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. Glues to wood with white glue and to other materials with super glue or epoxy.
