A boy and a girl, happy under the umbrella on a rainy day - engraved in an aplaca spoon.
It is a very unique gift idea, perfect for all occasions, for both men and women!
Aplaca is a very regular cutlery material - it is an alloy of copper, nickel and zinc.
Alpaca or nickel silver first became popular as a base metal for silver-plated cutlery and other silverware, notably the electroplated wares called EPNS (electro-plated nickel silver). It is used in zippers, better-quality keys, costume jewelry, for making musical instruments (e.g., flutes, clarinets), and is preferred for the track in electrically powered model railway layouts, as its oxide is conductive. It is widely used in the production of coins (e.g. Portuguese escudo and the former GDR marks). Its industrial and technical uses include marine fittings and plumbing fixtures for its corrosion resistance, and heating coils for its high electrical resistance.
