Same can be said of "Micarta", yes?

"Micarta" is a trademark of Westinghouse.

The industry term for the material is something along the lines of "phenolic laminate"

I found paper work on this knife and the seller said it was white micarta.

Sidney, I bought 4 Knives that looked just like the knife in the picture from Tom Clinton years ago.

Very nice knives with the white material but still just regular Randall Made Knives.
