Pewter Hip Flask Engraved For A Little Piece Of History
On the modern market, the majority of hip flasks are made from stainless steel and flasks made from pewter are more of a rarity. So if you want to have a hip flask with that little extra quirk and sense of antiquity, then a pewter hip flask engraved could be perfect for you!
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy consisting mostly of tin and then employing copper and/or antimony as hardening agents. This makes them perfect for the construction of hip flasks. As an alloy, pewter has been used by many different peoples in history and can be dated as far back as the Middle East in the second century BCE. Though it is used today for specialist items like engraved hip flasks, pewter used to be the primary component in making household crockery. The material became increasingly popular during the Middle Ages and was used prominently up until the nineteenth century. Traditionally, lead was often used in pewter products in the past. But since it has been found to be poisonous to humans, it is no longer included in the manufacturing process and there is very careful attention to detail in making pewter products that will come into contact with food or drink. Nowadays, the status of pewter as a more antiquated material has lent a special quality to engraved gifts that are made completely out of this. Buying a pewter hip flask is like buying a small token of the past, harkening to a time when such items were lovingly hand-made. If you are interested in the past, then a pewter hip flask is an essential addition to your collection.
