...that allows it to split or cleave, is what?

The material is said to be _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (7 letters)

There you go who's first?

Close. I had to look it up, which is why I didn't post a response. I'd actually never heard of the word, but it is a derivative of your answer.

Long, long ago when the roof did not leak and all the points were dry I was a bit green under the gills and would research the questions on the internet. If I asked: What is a chisel? all you needed to do was put "chisel" into a search engine and the answer would be there. These days all the questions come from our extensive library of dusty books and ancient magazines (each question comes with a dose of sneezing!)

Now you have to fly over here and break into the Puzzler's office to get your mitts on the answer!

Au contraire, O Great Puzzler

I was able to use one of the many search engines available to decipher the answer. :D

However, I thought the rules of the game are that you are supposed to use personal knowledge and not the internet. If that's not the case, let me know and I'll take my first soggy points in a while. :D

John, You are playing the game the way it was intended. Looking it up is not banned... it is just cheating! 8)
