Steel is an alloy that is made by combining iron and carbon. Among its technical characteristics is its strong resistance to any sort of oxidation. However, in order to prevent alteration to its properties over time, steel must be polished with the utmost professionalism and competency.
The most common polishing process for steel involves a two-step mechanical process and the removal of a superficial layer of chrome. This leaves the steel slightly more resistant to wear, as well as more opaque and a bit dull.
