You can have your own opinions, but don’t pressure your views on others. And btw, don’t have a heart attack, but I already powder coated an E=MC^2 for someone Anyway, I haven’t really heard of an anodize that looks like an obsidian Markmont Next, ask England about that, he’ll know much more than me. The process for that color was the Markmont Next was first nickel plated, then went through another process that caused it to quickly tarnish, turning it black. There is, however, a powder coat that I find to be pretty close, called Solar Rain or Black Chrome or something, ask mullicabob about this, I never found it attractive so I never bought the powder. And black anodize over a polish would just look like a shiny black.
