 Celluloid | Plastic Types & History | The Carrotbox - glass rings, lucite rings, plastic rings, jade rings, wooden ...
Celluloid, the first entirely synthetic plastic, was invented by American John W. Hyatt in 1869 (the name was coined by his brother).
Hyatt was looking for something to replace ivory; billiards had become a very popular game, but the balls were made of valuable ivory —; and thus were getting more and more expensive as more and more elephants were killed for their tusks.
He began manufacturing celluloid in 1872, but his billiard balls didn't do well — they had the unfortunate tendency to explode on contact due to the volatile, flammable nature of celluloid!

Celluloid is a man-made material that was commonly used for knife handles in the early 1900s.
Since knives with celluloid handles would be almost certainly from the early 1900s, very old for a balisong, one of our major collecting goals, this has caused us to turn down some really great pieces.
If you have any knives or other items (celluloid was also common on custume jewlery, pens, and other decorative objects of the same era) with celluloid, I urge you to keep them separate from the rest of your collection and not to store them in closed containers.
