The pen writes really well, but the coating/finishing (don’t know the right way to name it) is so disappointing. I’m really careful with my pens and the Prelude is the only one showing signs of wear on its body.

 

Mine is relatively new, made in China (I only knew they were not being made in the US anymore when I got it).

 

Anyone else’s Prelude with the same issue?

Got two Prelude fps. Brushed chrome and Copper GT. The finish on the lacquered model tends to get scratches easily.

My red lacquered pen has a seemingly invulnerable finish.  The three stainless pens I have are similar.  One of them, cth CT pen, came with Italic nibs.  I like them, but they are a bit heavy.
