I'm considering purchasing a Duofold Prestige, the blue and gold chevron model. However, I'm concerned about the metal section. I actually really enjoy the cool heavy feeling of a metal section, but will it corrode quickly? For 700 dollars, this is a pen that I would want to pass on to my daughter someday as an heirloom of sorts.
Do you have any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

It depends. Is it chrome plated or some solid metal?
