Bert Frank items are designed to oppose the throw away culture we live in today and are built to last at least as long as you will. During this time they will age and mature with you. The brass will soften and darken (unless you don't want it to and treat it to a little polish) and any knocks or scratches it may pick up over the years will add to its story.
Bert Frank take a huge amount of pride in designing and manufacturing products in-house in the UK to the highest possible standard. They don't cut corners and they don't sacrifice on quality to reduce costs and therefore Bert Frank products will be a joy to own and use.
