I'm just gonna flat out say it. I don't like holding on to a metal pen. I don't mind if the body is metal, I don't care too much about the cap material, but the part you actually hold on to (grip or sometimes just called the section) has to be something other than metal. Ebonite! Acrylic! Precious Resin! anything but metal. Now you are going to say "but Marc, surely there has to be ONE metal pen you like?" Ok, just one. The Vanishing Point. You got me there. So what do you like? Does it matter? Does it influence your decisions?
