My money clip arrived on Monday and looks great.
I especially like the way it looks outside in the sunlight.
I wanted to write to say "thanks".

How Anodizing Works:
This good looking titanium money clip is fabricated from American titanium and all manufacturing processes are completed in the United States and Canada using skilled labor and the latest technologies.
The colors produced by anodizing titanium
are formed by the refraction of light off of
and through the thin titanium oxide layer
that is produced. These colors are called
interference colors. There are no pigments
or dyes involved. In this process, the clear
micronic oxide layer (TiO2) that normally
envelopes titanium (leaving the metal a gray
color) is electrically thickened by a very
small amount. This clear oxide filters out
light waves, producing brilliant colors.
creating different refractive effects which
the human eye perceives as different colors.
By controlling the application of electric
currents and voltages in different
intensities and duration bring about the
different resulting colors, across the
When the oxide is
of a thickness to generate
interference colors, its depth is
measured in angstroms
(Ĺ=1/100,000,000 centimeter). This
layer can vary in thickness from 500
to 1,000Ĺ+ depending on the color.
It is not the oxide itself that is
perceived by the viewer, but its
effect on light waves. Because colors are optically created
you can see subtle differences in
the amount and/or shade of color
from morning to twilight hours of
the day. The angle of viewing, and
type of light source will also
|Titanium is extremely elastic (springy),
lightweight, corrosion resistant and
non-magnetic making it the very best
material for a money clip. Being 30% more
elastic than steel, it's great for clamping

steel, while actually having greater
It is safe to hold credit cards or bank

These titanium money clips are engrave able.
It is recommended to have the engraving done
locally to ensure that the font type, size,
location, etc are produced the way you want.
Titanium is difficult material to machine
and work with, but the result is worth the
effort. Titanium is immune to corrosive
attack by salt water or marine atmospheres
and is used in submarines, aircraft (the
SR-71 Blackbird is almost entirely
fabricated from titanium), satellites,
Ferrari hubcaps, and your money clip.
