There might be some confusion between Wheel with K18 Metal and Silver Wheel.
・How are they made?
Actually the same mold is used for the both Wheels.
After it is made as Silver Wheel, if it will become Wheel with K18 Metal, K18 Gold Metal would be added with brazing.
・How are they used? *THE MOST IMPORTANT*
Wheel with K18 Metal: for the Chains
Silver wheel: for the Leather Cords
It would not be the other way round.
・OLD Design and NEW Design?
If it is the Wheel with K18 Metal, the Metal of OLD Design would be uneven shaped and size since hand made.
The Wheel with K18 Metal with bigger Metal could be more valuable!
