Best Made Company - Seamless & Steadfast Enamel Steel Plates

There are certain companies whose name is a key-part of their branding (as an example - Fresh N' Easy sounds like how like my produce, and easy is how I like my shopping experience, so it makes perfect sense for a grocery store). In the streetwear game - I give the nod to Best Made Company out of New York - they only release a handfull of goods a year - with their collection spanning menswear, housewear, outdoor goods, and of course - real manly stuff like knives and axes. Anyway - currently working on convincing wifey we need these plates. Aside from being easy on the eyes, they are naturally built for the long haul. More specs below, and purchase here.

First featured in the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1876, enamelware was touted to combine "all the advantages of glass with the strength of metal". Since then enamel tin and steel have long been favored by outdoorsmen and cowboys because it is light, durable and easy to clean. Our cups are dishwasher safe and can even be brandished over an open fire.

Our enamelware comes to us from a legendary European manufacturer, and using World War Two era machinery they bake our renowned "Famous X" and compass rose directly to the plate insuring a smooth, long-lasting, and seamless finish. But what truly distinguishes our enamelware is the heft and durability: the rim — the spot that gets the most abuse — is reinforced with a double dipping of enamel, and the steel itself is weighty (not flimsy and tinpot) all of which makes this the most steadfast plate in the land.
