If you’re like most people, you cook at home. You might even use steel wool – the go-to abrasive cleaning tool since the late 1800s – to clean your cookware. But steel wool tends to fray and wear out in a matter of weeks. It also collects tiny bits of food, which are nearly impossible to get out and foster the growth of nasty bacteria. Not exactly what you want for a cleaning product, right?
This Saint Lawrence Chainmail Scrubber solves all those problems. The 7/16″, 16-gauge wire rings are far more durable than the tiny strands of steel wool, which means you can use this scrubber for years to come. And it’s made from food-grade 304 alloy stainless steel, so it’s safe to use in your kitchen (or your campsite). Cleaning it is easy, too – just a bit of hot, soapy water, and the grime comes right out. You can even throw it in the dishwasher.

Measures approximately 3.5″ square. Extra space in the weave allows it to expand nearly 1″ in either direction. Safe for use on cast iron, glassware, pizza stones, and stainless steel. But please, for the sake of your mother’s vintage Le Creuset French oven, do NOT use this on enameled, nonstick, copper, or other soft metal cookware. Do not use with bleach or other chlorine-based cleaners, as this will corrode the steel rings.
In 2015, I purchased an engagement ring and planned to propose to Elizabeth on July 2, the (old calendar) Feast of the Visitation. But I knew an engagement ring wasn’t enough; I had to have something even more personal, authentic, and significant than that. So, I decided to make her a rosary. This was a multi-week effort for me to track down tutorials online, talk to other rosary artisans I had discovered through Twitter and Etsy, design my rosary, source the materials, practice using the tools, and finally build this beaded work of art. And…she absolutely loves it. (She said yes, by the way–and we married on January 9th, 2016.)
While planning our wedding, Elizabeth and I decided that we want to continue making rosaries together, as a way to further encourage prayer within our relationship and for our families and friends. We see this ministry as an opportunity to reach even more people through prayer and to participate in our own way in the mission of winning hearts for Christ and His Church.
We invite you to browse our selection at Our Lady’s Armory–a selection which will continue to grow over time. Please feel free to contact us if you’d like to talk about a new design; we’d love to help make your vision a reality! We believe that beauty and integrity are two ways of coming to know God more intimately, so we take deep pride in our work and hope that it will encourage you in your faith. Should you decide to purchase from us, know that we are grateful for your support as we grow closer to God and to one another in marriage!
Nicholas and Elizabeth
