Welcome to SM-factory,„There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper."
So the decision became obvious to combine well made craftsmanship with our urge for elaborate and functional design.
Although we named ourselves „SM-factory" every one of our pieces is thoroughly designed and handcrafted.
Within our manufacturing processes there are no such things as „standard" collar sizes or „standard" parts and pieces coming from a machine.
OK now - we don′t make our own stainless steel, but:
we do grind, bend and polish it in order to make every piece fit individually and perfectly.
Yes, they´re lockable
To put things in perspectivehere is the complete quote from Ruskin mentioned earlier:
„There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man′s lawful prey.
It′s unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money -- that is all. When you pay too little, you may lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot -- it can′t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better."
