Shit, did I post that? I wrote it and deleted it FFS! Didn't so much change my mind, but decided part way through (hence the abrupt ending...) that it wasn't something that sat right. Mainly for the reason you stated - paint is paint. But, I do think chrome has such a habit of getting ruined, and as you actually pointed out, you ain't gonna be able to make good in a way that's remotely close. At least with regular paint you can have a decent enough stab with an airbrush. My other reason was that I realised that the grip wouldn't be painted either way, just the blade, so it you were gentle you could preserve it pretty well either way. Anyway, I posted when I didn't want to, on a point that you agreed with my reason for deleting it, and I look like a bit of a dick. Good day all round I reckon!
