Mebbe try a lutherie supplier? If I understand it correctly, that is.
I'm thinking pearlite is, um, sheets of pearly-looking stuff (like what
is used for accents on guitar necks).
If that's the case, I would repost this message to the
music.makers.builders newsgroup. I can't remember if it's rec. or alt.
Hope it helps.
I tried a fast Google or two and discovered, among other things, that
"pearlite" is heavily involved with metals, specifically sheet steel in the
instances I found. So that's not much help.
I did try looking up plastics manufacturers. I suggest you do the same: you'll
find most are Asian, I think (seem to be heavily Indian, then Chinese,
Malaysian, Thai). Check with their sites to see what they make and then find a
way (this may be a lot of fun) to ask them who their U.S. distributors are.

Your post, Charlie, led me to pull out my woodturning catalogs as the
pen makers often use similar pearly material but not in sheet form. It
appears a more accurate label instead of pearlite would be acrylester
and celluloid. A quick google search using these words along with sheet
and knife or gun turned up what I think is what the OP is looking for.
