Collection: Stainless Steel
In the beginning, stainless steel was sold in the US under different brand names like “Allegheny metal” and “Nirosta steel.” Even within the metallurgy industry the eventual name remained unsettled until 1921 when one trade journal called it “unstainable steel.” In 1929, before the Great Depression hit, over 25,000 tons of stainless steel were manufactured and sold in the US.
Stainless steels are most notable for their corrosion and staining resistance, which increases with increasing chromium content. This resistance, the low maintenance, and familiar luster make it an ideal material for many applications where both the strength of steel and corrosion resistance are required.
The alloy of stainless steel we use is extremely tough and corrosion resistant and should last for generations, taking any abuse you can give it while still looking great. It has a brighter silver color than titanium which has a little more gray to it.
