How does it perceive and sense in your hands? I we hope we help you find a perfect set of handmade flatware, silverware, serveware, cheese knife and accessories, tabletop or barware!
First things first, base metal which in our case is 18 8 Stainless Steel. So for metal iron to be called as Stainless Steel it has to have at least 11.5% of Chromium which makes SS rust resistant. But all our products are made of 18% Chromium component. Now, second important component of good SS is Tin which makes it more corrosion resistant and malleable which makes it perfect case for hand forging. But problem with Chromium is that it has very low melting point of 450°F or 232°C it tends to evaporates while forging as iron has melting point of 2800°F or 1538°C . So even though we start out with 8% Tin content SS but it melts away some of it. I hoping this isn’t too much info but just to be informative about our products and crafting process. So, we consulted with the independent metallurgists at CATRA (Cutlery and Allied Trade Research Association, www.catra.org) to assess the alternatives to using nickel. We learned that 18 8 stainless steel has a resistance to corrosion that far exceeds what is required for normal domestic use. Our 12% Chromium stainless steel, properly processed, still meets high standards for quality and passes all standard corrosion tests done by internationally reputed labs around the world. Most of our products are certified as Dishwasher Safe.
