    • We don't know the exact precise composition of the various foreign metal alloys used to make this.
    • We aren't metallurgists and we cannot ever be 100% certain about anything.
    • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability.
    • Using 100% of any metal might make the product entirely too soft to endure.
    • Magnets will stick to ferrous metals.
    • Magnets attract to ferrous metals such as iron, nickel, cobalt, certain steels and other alloys.
    • Brass, aluminum, copper, and most stainless steels, however, are non ferrous, and magnets are not attracted to them.
