    Default Ivory brush ????

    Gíday all,
    scored this clothes brush as part of a kit with a Pike Strop Hone & some other bits recently
    didnít think much of the brush when I bought it.
    now I have it in my hand I am very intrigued, as it looks like Ivory,
    now I havenít done any destructive testing yet to confirm but the grain pattern looks very realistic, and if it is faux it is a very good product.
    have any of you guys seen any brushes like this in Ivory?
    It is a very smooth feel & finish though I gave it a light clean with a 5k grit sponged W&D but that is it so far.
    any educated guesses on if itís real or faux?
    before I try burn it or anything

    I don't know. Pixelfixed might be able to tell you. The grain looks too uniform to me to be natural, but I could be wrong, I was wrong once before.

    My first thought is the same as Jimmy's the grain (schreger) lines are too uniform and evenly spaced for it to be ivory. Take a look here https://www.rubylane.com/blog/catego...s-is-it-ivory/ at the celluloid French Ivory example pictured.

    Thanks for the link Bob,
    it definately looks more like the Ivorine box as the patern is full length lines
    I didn't think it has the feel or weight for size that my 2 Ivory scaled Str8s seem to have, even though they are very different to each other also
    so this would confirm it I think,
    it was just that the roughness of the lines weren't as cleen & straight as the Faux Ivory Scales I have on a couple of str8s.
    I could only wish & hope LOL

    thanks

    Wish, hope and take a hot pin and stick it in a spot that isn't noticeable. If it is ivory it won't penetrate, if it is celluloid it will.

    Yeah, it's the imitation - the real ivory doesn't grow in layers like on this material. In real ivory's cross section you can see the 'schreger lines' in a chevron-like pattern.
