Realistic Ivory Alternative
I searched the internet for a suitable ivory substitute to make a set of grips for a western styled revolver. I had great difficulty finding the correct thickness and/or a large enough cut piece larger than that needed for small knife scales. Then I found this Alternative Ivory. Not only is it my proper needs thickness at 1/2" but very thoughtful outer (slab) cut size options to fit any budget. I was also pleased to find out this material cuts and machines more like hard wood than many polymers that heat up and can get gummy. This is med/hard material, but works like soft. It's dusty though, so wear a mask when sanding. It sands fast so take your time and enjoy shaping your project. I finished my grips (all by hand, no buffer) with 3000 grit wet paper, and polished to a nice sheen with Novus plastic polish. I couldn't be happier with the realist ivory looking appearance. I'm so glad I found this material.

Ivory sheets
Product is of very good quality and is easy to work with, I would have given it 5 stars, but one sheet had a very scratch on the finished side, so I had to try and work around that portion and discard it.

I have used these items on Colt Single Action grips and knife handles. Great product. Looks like real ivory.

Chips very easily. Will break if dropped.
