Titanium’s incredible strength, durability, relative lightness, and resistance to corrosion make it the ultimate core material for a luxury writing instrument. Its sleek, elegant and lustrous appearance can take on a wide spectrum of colour by applying extreme heat or electricity. This action produces a thin and transparent oxide layer that filters out light waves producing bright colours, even though there are no pigment or dyes involved. The colour, in essence, is an optical illusion. This remarkable, almost magical, metal is a challenging and labour-intensive one to work with – but for the fervent craftsman, Titanium holds rewarding and endless possibilities.
