    Opinions please - Buckle color

    I purchased a T1 and I am ready to pull the trigger on an Black Isofrane strap... I am super anal when it comes to things matching(or at least looking like they were intended to work together) but the RS buckle only comes in a brushed stainless or PVD coated... Which route would you go??? It looks like the IN buckle came in a blasted steel but I can't seem to locate when ordering so I am assuming it is no longer available..

    Another option would be to have the RS buckle bead/sand blasted which may be the route I take if this ends up driving me nuts... Or for the ultimate in OCDness I could try to have a buckle made out of Ti...

    I realize everyone has their own opinions but I would appreciate any guidance you are willing to throw my way...

    Thanks in advance...

    Blasting the brushed stainless will come close to the original steel finish, but I don't know about titanium. PVD will match the strap color, if not the case color. You could probably go with PVD until you find something.

    I agree with Thunderbear, I would get the PVD buckle. Cheers, Bill P.

    I have number of buckles that are PVD. I'm a desk diver so the buckle sees a lot of contact with my desk, keyboard or edge of my MacBook. It doesn't take that long for the PVD to start wear off of my buckle. Lesson learned so I only get PVD buckle for show, but for wearing I'll stick with SS buckle, so I can touch it up with either a quick polish or quick scotch pad.
