Hi everyone,

Simple question... do we know if the inlays are plastic or actually mother of pearl and abalone? I have original Destroyers from 1982 and these news ones look really good next to the real ones...if they are in fact plastic but I'd like to know from the "horse's mouth so to speak":-)

Thanks!

I'm almost certain that they are real. I'll follow up and find out for sure if they were real or not. I know that on a lot of our models we've used real Abalone, which leads me to believe that White Pearl material is also real.

I'll let you know what I can find out!

After checking back, I've confirmed that the Abalone is real, and the White Pearl material is acrylic.

Hope this helps!
