We forge, stamp and cast using the best quality brass available, that is then polished and lacquered. All brass ages and tarnishes over time. We love an old brass handle with natural wear.
Of course, if you want it to look new for as long as possible, clean it with Mr Sheen and a soft dry cloth regularly and make sure it stays dry. The protective lacquer coating needs to remain intact.
For those that wish their brass product to age quickly, the lacquer can be removed with paint stripper and polishing.
