Stainless Steel Sink finishes.

There are several finished on stainless steel sinks. The most common are mirrored (bright and shiny like a mirror) and brushed. Eclipse Sinks have a brushed finish because of its attractive appearance and because you can repair minor scratches which are inevitable. With a mirror finish once it is scratched there is no way to repair the finish.
I have had a sample sink that I carry with me to visit prospects. One day I was telling a prospect that Eclipse sinks used quality steel and because of the brushed finish I could repair scratches. He looked at me then reached in his pocket and pulled out he set of keys and proceeded to scratch my sample.
I took the sample into his shop and repaired the scratches. I still carry that sample and tell prospects about the incident and challenge them to find the scratch. No one has. Note that cheap sinks will “flash” and show the repair spot.
