    Are there any degradation issues with the old stuff....you know, like melting Tupperware?
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    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.
