FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


All good flatware is now be made from stainless steel. The three most common grades are 18/10, 18/8 and 18/0. The two numbers in the name reflect the percentage of Chromium and Nickel in the alloy. For example, 18/10 contains 18% Chromium and 10% Nickel. Of the three grades 18/10 is considered the best for its high rust resistance and strong ability to hold a polish. That is the reason all Ian Wilson Designs flatware is made from 18/10 stainless steel.

Because of the high Chromium content, good stainless steel flatware should not rust under normal conditions. It is possible to get 18/10 stainless to corrode from prolonged exposure to highly acidic food, but rust won't be an issue for the average user. Lower grade stainless steels such as 18/0 are more susceptible, but even they can take a lot of mistreatment.

Before the advent of stainless steel, most good eating utensils were made from silver. When stainless steel was developed, it soon replaced silver in most houses because it was cheaper than silver, had no taste, and did not need be polished. When the term flatware was used in the late 19th century, it applied to both silver and metal utensils. Since then the opposite has become true, with silverware being commonly used to refer to both stainless steel and silver utensils.

Ian Wilson Designs uses the Lost Wax Casting Process to produce our flatware. This is the method used to produce fine sculpture and jewelry. The following video will show you how the process is used to create fine jewelry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1_NZKTewtg

Forging and stamping are the two most common methods of producing flatware. Ian Wilson Designs uses a third, lost wax casting. While there are very subtle metallurgical differences between the metal pieces made using the different processes, there is zero functional difference with regard to flatware. The real difference comes in the shapes possible using the methods. The intricate and beautiful designs of our flatware are only made possible by using the casting process.

Ian Wilson Designs Flatware is exclusively available on this website. In order to offer you our unique flatware at the best possible price, we have you buy directly from us. This eliminates the costly chain of distributors, wholesalers, and retailers. Those savings are passed along to you.
