What alloy is most silverware made from?

Is it weldable?

Type 302 or "18-8" if you are lucky.

However I have a stainless turkey kettle from WalMart that developed pits and a pinhole leak after a few years of heating only tapwater for laundry. The water doesn't affect a Faberware kettle.

I use cheap kitchenware as a handy source of stainless sheet and screen but not for anything critical.

The flatware I've got is stamped 18/10, which seems to be 302 stainless according to Wikipedia. Must be welded carefully due to hot cracking, annealing at around 1800 C is highly recommended.
