Temporary exhibition "Tin-steel cutlery"

Although tin was a popular material, it was not as well suited as a material for cutlery because of its deformability as other metals. Therefore, in 1877, a process was invented in which a core of steel was coated with tin – the tin-steel cutlery. This structur is clearly visible on radiographs.

 

Until the 1930s tin-steel cutlery was traded in large numbers and they now represent an important aspect of the history of cutlery.

Since a short time ago the German Blade Museum is in possession of a corresponding collection. It was kindly supported by the "Freunde des Deutschen Klingenmuseums e. V." by Mr. Gerhard Stepper, Erkrath, and can currently be visited in our temporary exhibition.
