I've never done anything on sterling silver but need to start. Done steel and copper. How does the hardness of sterling compare to copper? I really don't want to do too much "practice" on $20 pendant blanks so I was just wondering what to expect before I started cutting. Thanks.

Thanks everyone. Now I know what to expect. I put a tad bit longer heel on my graver and turned down the pressure and stroke on my Lindsay classic. It helps a lot but you still have to pay attention or it will dig a hole in a heartbeat. Not nearly as forgiving as steel. Thanks again.
