3.75" folded; 7" unfolded Materials
18/8 sanitary and inert stainless steel. Made from electropolished, non-leaching, high grade 304 L.N. 304 L.N. stainless steel is grade blended specifically for food preparation, dairy, brewing, various medical uses and other applications where mineral migration is unacceptable. The steel is put through a electropolishing process which seals the surface and prevents minerals from migrating into the contents.
Stainless steel is an iron-containing alloy made from some of the basic elements found on earth: iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon, nitrogen, and manganese. Properties of the final alloy are tailored by varying amounts of these elements. There are more than 57 stainless steels recognized as standard alloys on the market. Stainless steel has excellent resistance to stain or rust due to its chromium content making it a material of choice among the food processing, dairy and brewery industries. Stainless steel is easy to clean, durable, inert and sanitary. Sustainability
Billions of single-use, disposable plastic utensils are consumed each year. Most are used for less than an hour then thrown away - while handy, this "free" convenience comes at a massive cost to society. They generate millions of tons of unnecessary waste each year - not to mention the natural resources required to make them in the first place (the price of which is passed along to consumers). Using reusable utensils helps preserve natural resources, protect the environment and save money in the process.
Not only is the SIGG cutlery set designed to be reusable, they are 100% recyclable at the end of their very long lives. Stainless steel is one of the most environmentally friendly materials in the world because it is extremely easy to recycle, regaining nearly all of its properties and making it ideal for repurposing. About SIGG
For 100+ years, SIGG has utilized Swiss precision and craftsmanship to produce high-quality reusable bottles. The history of SIGG Switzerland dates back to 1908 when metal processing specialist Ferdinand Sigg established an aluminum product factory in Biel, Switzerland. The SIGG bottle became a fixture in Swiss households; in fact, every member of the Swiss Army had a SIGG bottle issued as standard field gear. A USA subsidiary was launched in 2005, but SIGG operations still remain in the quaint village of Frauenfeld, Switzerland to this day.
SIGG is committed to preserving nature. They choose FSC-certified papers for all their publications, and work with eco-printing plants to actively reduce CO2 emissions and participate in voluntary climate protection. Care Instructions
