Hello,
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.

I doubt that it will corrode

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