This is an incredible set! I got mine in Matte Steel Bronze. Out of shipping bags there were almost not signs of artifacts, took simple brushing on the inside to clean them out completely. The steel cast dice weigh about the same as a standard set and are proportioned perfectly! I used a florescent paint on the numbers inside, and with an additional UV light above, they look amazing! not that they didn't already... I got the Matte Bronze for a bit of an ancient look, using the florescent paint to give them a bit of an ancient-magical-artifact look, and the end result is exactly what I wanted! The Steel is very sturdy, the cage design looks a bit flimsy, but looks are deceiving. the D6 has the longest most exposed parts, and after a bit of testing, I tried squeezing it between my fingers as hard as I could; it didn't budge.
