Stainless steel is an alloy of steel that contains approximately 18% chromium as well as varying amounts of nickel, niobium, molybdenum, and titanium. It resists corrosion more readily than regular steel or iron and as such usually retains a very bright lustre due to a nickel based film that forms on the surface.

It is not a period material and is readily distinguishable from steel armour by this very shiny appearance.
