    I love my blue handle bakelike. The biggest reason I got it was the rarity of both the mammoth and the bakelite.

    Bakelite was a brand name of celluloid plastic, bakelite was the original or 1st thermosetting phenol formaldehyde resin, celluloid is the generic name. Micarta - early composite that used Bakelite as a binding agent, trademarked 1912 by Westinghouse Elec. & Mfg Co. Chemically speaking all phenol formaldehyde resins identical, it's the material used to form a composite that separates the different types, but Bakelite wasn't a composite it was just straight plastic so it's identical to celluloid.
