Alkeme is a precision milled tin-based alloy developed by ImpressArt specially for hand-stamping. This soft metal makes it easy to stamp deep crisp impressions. The soft silver color is similar to sterling silver and the fine milled surface can be brought to a high shine or to a matte finish. The name Alkeme is a nod to the age-old alchemist who searched for ways to transmute base metals into precious silver and gold.
I loved the weight, shape and size of these. Perfect for what my client was looking for. However the quality was not great. I received some that were marked with a black lines and scratches that even my tumbler could not remove (after letting it tumble for hours) I tried a polishing cloth as well but nothing worked. In the end, I felt like I could only use two of the four I bought.
Descent thickness. But the blank is small. Definitely not the size of an average dog tag. Mine came with some lines going across it. Most came out with my polishing wheel.
