I recently sanded all of the paint off of my Nemosine Fission pen ( it was a white colour that was getting obnoxiously dirty and scratched up). The metal underneath is a lovely bronze colour, and has started to oxidize nicely, but I have noticed that it is so soft that it will leave a line on paper and that I can write with it.
It may seem foolish, but seeing as that the pen body is made in Taiwan, I have a some questions about the toxicity of the metal of this pen. I am a student so I write and just hold my pen a fair amount of the day, and I would hate to be absorbing some trace amounts of a nasty metal through my skin.
If it does have unsavoury side effects, I'll just put a few coats of some nice dark blue Testors ink on it.
