Blockplate (ver. 2.0) is the upgraded version of the original Blockplate (ver. 1.0).
It features a higher quality engraving allow you to be able to easily see and feel the depth of it. It is deeper, darker, and larger. This allows Blockplates to endure even tougher physical and heat abuse.
The metal itself is polished with a brushed stainless steel finish, also known as the "workhorse" finish, commonly used kitchen, hospitals, and factories.
