I use this alternative ivory for knife scales and found it easy to drill, cut and sand to form. It has a subtle modulated grain pattern when highly polished which looks quite natural, simulating real ivory. I'm very satisfied with the ivory look and feel of this product. It also doesn't have the offensive smell of real ivory when being cut and sanded to form. The smell is of a slight perfume nature and dissipates over time.
