  1. Early style knife forged from 5160, walnut scales and pewter bolsters
  2. I have a huge amount of salad sets with pewter handles that were made in Indonesia in 2001. The composition is 91% tin, 7% antimony and 2% copper. It has been made in a factory where also pewter picture frames were made. Well, Inever really doubted the composition, and it was supposed to be guaranteed lead free. I have about 350 to 450 kg of this lying around, and see the price of tin, I wanted to sell some as scrap pewter, as I do not want to sell the salad sets anymore. Someone tries to offer me a ridiculous low amount of money claiming that 99% of all pewter is lead anyway. I have already melted some of the pewter for experimental projects in my workshop, on a small gas stove, or with a small burner. I don't have a thermometer to check the temperature... The pewter products have been packed in silk paper and carboard boxes in a big carton since 2001. There are white spots here & there on the pewter. I have read this is typical. The pewter is not tarnished, it is still shiny like silver. The pewter I use at home stays shiny too. The only shining up I need to do is with a cloth. Of course the pewter I put in my dishwasher (yes, I am lazy) is now dull. Any tips on, apart from it being tested, I can check if it really is pewter? Thanks!!!
