Cutlery

A collection of flatware to include cutlery from Sheffield and chopsticks.

What is the difference between 18.10 and 18.0 stainless steel cutlery?

It’s all in the number.

The numbers are used to describe the quality and grade of the stainless steel. The two main components used to manufacture cutlery are chromium and nickel. The numbers 18.10 and 18.0 show the percentage of these components that are present in stainless steel used to manufacture the cutlery. In 18.10 there is 18% chromium and 10% nickel, whilst in 18.0 there is 18% chromium and no nickel.

Nickel or no nickel; that is the question!

Whilst chromium gives cutlery its rust-resistant qualities and hardness, it is the job of nickel to enhance its corrosion resistance, as well as providing a silver-like shine. The higher the nickel content, the more rust resistant and shinier the cutlery will be. This however, does come at a cost as nickel is somewhat expensive.

Which is right for you?

If you are looking for cutlery that feels heavy in your hand and has a superior shine and rust resistant qualities, choose 18.10.If you will be using your cutlery everyday, don’t mind it feeling light in weight and not as shiny, choose 18.0.
