Before you purchase learn about pen plating — it’s related to your pens’ finish. Pen plating refers to the metal plating applied to the metal components of a pen. The type of plating – gold, titanium, etc – determines the pens’ ‘finish’.
The metal components of a pen are subject to wear with just normal use. Everyday use can create abrasions on the metal components — for example on the pen’s clip. For this reason it’s important to invest in high quality components. Manufacturers offer several quality levels of plating on these metal components. The higher the quality of the plating the better the wear resistance rating.
