    Default Is Black PVD Titanium ALWAYS Blackline?

    I suppose what I am getting at is what actually IS "Blackline"?

    Is it just the trademark name for black PVD'ing a bit of titanium so can be made by anyone as long as they follow the correct manufacturing process or is it the name for jewellery made by one company or another option?

    ''Blackline'' is just a trademark name, manufactured by Wildcat. Be careful, a lot of companies use just paint that will chip off... difficult to tell which ones though, usually it has 'coated' in the description but you never know (although you can usually notice a difference when you see them in person)

    Wildcat's is PVD coated, I never had a problem with the colour peeling/fading, and the ones I got at crazy factory, but the overall quality isn't as good.

    The difference is PVD coated or just black in colour which will chip off. I'm not sure if there's other places that do PVD coated black, probably is though.

    I think Industrial Strength experimented with PVD coating for a bit, but they weren't satisfied or something so they don't really offer it. steelnavel has some of their eyelets and threaded ends, the rest are cheaper brands.
