I found a link that answers your question and you were right. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...ot-Cabone-quot
In catalogs the 70s, I see handles material called "Cabone."
This is another name for derlin or another material?
Thank you, edbeau!
But I do not understand why in the catalog 1977 (http://www.collectors-of-camillus.us...77-Catalog.pdf) on page 4:
No.10 - derlin handle
No.14 - cabone handle
No.17 - derlin handle
No.18 - cabone handle
What are their differences?
Looks like the white finished scales are "Ivory Delrin" and that the various dark scales are being called "Carbone".
Could the term "Carbone" be a name brand of a type of Delrin by another company. If you look up "Carbone" on the internet all you find are carbone rings that are sold by craft stores. Hope one of the Pro's from Camillus tell us the real story.
I purchased these knives on ebay. I think this is cabone.

Thank you, Phil!
Now I smile when I see the word "Genuine Cabone"
Schrade had Genuine Staglon® too... and Camillus had Brownstag®

Cabone vs. Brownstag? I'm confused. While I understand that these terms (for some type of plastic material) were marketing terms unique to Camillus knives, can anyone explain the difference between these 2 handle materials? Are the beautiful knives that Vit pictured above outfitted with Cabone or Brownstag handles? Thanks.
