    Question Cabone handles


    ADVERTISEMENT
    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.

    Just a marketing ploy!

    Cabone = Camillus Bone (Dyed Delrin).
