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. 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 that looks like real ivory. The S grade looks just like real ivory but the S grade is more costly.
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. All Resin Ivory™ grades glow purple under a black light for ease of identification to customs authorities, etc.. 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!
