The sink itself is stainless steel and looks fine. It is the granite edge of the countertop that has the chips.

I saw this happen to my mother's undermount sink, and when I installed mine I specified a larger radius bullnose on the stone edge around the sink, so the edge would be less fragile. No chips yet, knock wood.

My integral sink came from the salvage yard! I love that there is nowhere for grey slime to accumulate. I found the faucet later, and still later, my brother modified the bowl/drainer on top. The sink isn't quite as deep as the counter, so we filled in the back with ironwood. And then added a spray attachment through the wood. Water filter is mounted under the sink, to the cold water only. The spray attachment is plumbed into the hot water. I added a white wire closet rack above, stretching the whole five feet. Wash dishes, fill dish rack as I go, and wipe down the empty counter when I'm done. My pretty every-day colored glass dishes live on the rack.
