    Yea, they looked to be too shiny and smooth to be bone. Be careful with them as they can be a little brittle if you bend them.

    Can't go exclusively by the collars as previously thought. I have some also that are collared but absolutely, definitely ivory

    Yes, you can't go exclusively by the use of collars in pinning or the lack of Schreger lines in ivory. It depends from where on the tusk and how it is cut for Schreger to be present iirc.

    That's a nice one. I have a couple and one of them is a 13/16" FBU. I think my other one has Ivory scales. I'll have to look for it.

    I should post my own image of the B&C, there’s oil on the blade, it’s really absolutely perfect. Kudos to Matt Griffith.
