Default Re: Fake 'ivory'

Agreed thereís nothing like the real thing...especially when so nicely polished you can see below its polished surface.

But meanwhile there is faux ivory / ivorine similar to as used by R.T. Shepherd that even with close scrutiny looks uniquely Ďsimilarí.

Itís readily available from suppliers ..wonder why more pipe makers donít use it.
