    The handle feels a little strange, and seems to have a fine grain pattern.

    Have you tried popping one of the scales off?

    Thanks for your responses.

    I have some pretty well-beaten celidor that to me looks different from this.

    My days of pretending I can disassemble pocket knives and put them back together are behind me.
    I'll try scratching it to see how deep the color goes. The white spots on it now seem to be something stuck onto it and scrape off with a fingernail.

    I had thought that someone might have masked the logo and sanded or painted, but the grain pattern is visible inside the logo also.

    The test for Ivory versus plastic is a hot pin which will penetrate the plastic but not the Ivory. I don’t think a hot pin will melt its way into bone.

    Or it will smell different. I'll try that too.
