304 stainless that is brought up to a #8 mirror finish. It matches chrome finishes, but offers many advantages over chrome. The stainless is hand sanded for hours with finer and finer grits of sandpaper, then it is buffed and passivated. A polished stainless finish will never chip or flake off like chrome. Damaged areas on a polished stainless product can be re-polished to their original shine. The metal will also never corrode. This is a very labor intensive finish, and provides the most high end finish option we offer.
