The thing about solid silver is you can connect with the actual maker through the hallmarks just like my Sheffield knives connect to craft cutlers which is a rapidly disappearing skill. And you can connect back through many of the knives via the materials to historic events and places places where the grips and parts originated. And maybe that puts these products on an entirely different level to the mass produced bland pieces you normally see. With the Sheffield items the materials which in many cases took a long time to find another dimension is added through the historic events to the items. So whether it’s the silver the knives and other pieces each product has a dimension which goes beyond the merely mass produced. The materials add another dimension of meaning to the product.
