Sierra® Vista™ Ballpoint Pen Kit
The Sierra Vista™ pen is a larger version of the very popular Sierra™ pen kit. The overall length of the Sierra Vista remains the same as the original. The Sierra Vista uses the same brass tube and drill bit size. A new bushing set is required as the Sierra Vista kit is larger in diameter. The plating on this gives it a very expensive look and provides the pen maker with confidence that their pen contains the best quality platings for a lifetime of wear. Make sure to pick your best blanks when making this elegant pen. This twist pen has the highest quality mechanism for a lifetime of use. The platings are made from the most robust materials and applied with state of the art processes. It uses premium Parker Type refill, including gel refills. When the plating has two platings such as chrome and satin chrome, we replace the black enamel on the original Sierra with the first plating and the second plating is used on the remainder of the pen. The black titanium has been done with a special process that gives it a mirror like smokey gray finish. The New Hardite ™ Plating is a proprietary coating that is primarily metallic in nature.The color is a rich, smokey bronze gold. It is extremely durable, more durable than titanium gold and is priced lower than titanium gold.

Sierra® Nomad Ballpoint Pen Kit
All gold plating used on these pen kits is 24K "upgrade gold". Upgrade means that the parts are plated using the rack method and that small amounts of cobalt or palladium are added to the plating chemicals. This enhances the durability of the gold plating. The tumbled method, which is not used on the kits we sell, produces an inferior gold plating and is less costly.
This is an extremely durable plating. Under normal use this plating should hold up for many years.
This method produces the most durable plating. This process is called PVD (particle vapor deposition). Titanium nitride matched to the color of the gold is molecularly bonded to the part and then 24K gold is bonded (sputtered) on the part to achieve a color match other gold parts on the kits. The parts are again re-plated after this. The final result is that the parts will virtually never wear. The manufacturer we use pioneered this process for writing instruments and are not aware of another company currently using this exact process.
This is a very durable hard plating. The manufacturer uses real platinum rather then rhodium and it should be expected to hold up under normal use for many years.
Titanium oxide is molecularly bonded (PVD) to the parts. This plating is unbelievably hard and durable. It will last for many, many years.
