of materials which take into consideration the following:
1. the compatibility of the material to the quality of the knife
2. the durability expectation during the cutting process
3. the versatility to suit more than one knife quality
4. the consideration of environmental issues and plastic recycling regulations
5. the economic advantage of using the Plastic Cutting Stick against using more traditional materials such as wood, xylonite or compressed paper
