    Polyoxymethylene (POM), also known as acetal,[1] polyacetal and polyformaldehyde is an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts that require high stiffness, low friction and excellent dimensional stability. As many other synthetic polymers, it is produced by different chemical firms with slightly different formulas and is therefore sold under many commercial names like Delrin, Celcon, Hostaform, etc.

    Excellent handle material, but sometimes looked down on as inferior to wood because it is "plasticky". Masamoto calls their version "Duracon".

    IM not 100% sure but it looks like wood, it done feel like plastic. There is a grain visible but its not that strong
