LOL You really do baffle me so.....
"Stainless does not patina, I have no idea why people are talking about this."
"These pens are stainless steel and will darken over time which is called patina."
"...but they will patina which is rather nice."
And once again, throwing around your credentials as an engineer....you'd think you should know that both rust and patina are forms of oxidization.
And that even "Stainless" can, sometimes quite easily, get active (red/orange) surface rust.
"In the folding knife world saying just steel also means stainless steel"
I mean, seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?? 🤣🤣🤣
If I see just "steel" stamped on a blade, I'm making no assumptions about it being stainless. The only assumption I'm making is that I definitely should not buy that knife.
I hope everyone enjoys the pens, but this just made me scratch my head in wonder, so much so that I just had to post a "wtf?" reply 🤯
