Show Me The Wear On Your Matte Black Vanishing Point?



Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a VP, and I'm torn between the matte black and the blue carbonesque. I'm really curious as to how the matte black finish wears off, and I'm not sure if I like it or not.

 

Can you share the wear on your matte black VP? Do you mind the wear or do you think it looks nice?

 

Thanks!

I'm curious about it myself, and I've seen the occasional post on the subject, so I'm surprised no one has responded to this yet...

 

Maybe reposting in a different category (though I don't know which one), or requesting general info instead of a photograph might help?

 

I hope something comes of your question.

Light wear. Mine mostly sits on my desk or goes for a day trip in my pocket to a meeting or something similar.

I love seeing battered versions of these pens. Their scratches, like sailors' tattoos, showing their journey through life . . . :)

I've heard this, too. I wouldn't want to be without a pen for months, though.

These replies are only making me have more doubts lol. I kind of like the way these look.

Nope. Keeping mine and all its scars.

 

(Looking forward to my Namisu Nova wearing a little too if I'm honest but their anodising seems to be made of hardier stuff)

I quite like the way the brass shows through. It's the sign of a much used tool. In the camera community many people love their brass bodied cameras. Leica even produced 'pre-brassed' bodies for those who couldn't wait for authentic wear.

I've had it for about a year. If it doesn't get jostled around with other hard objects, it will be fine.

It would be in a pen sleeve when not in use so I guess it will be fine :)

I posted these in a similar thread at the beginning of the year, so these images are circa January. That said, it looks the same today as it's been in rotation less than usual.
