I don't want to get too off topic here, but there are so many variables I don't think anyone can say that there is one right way to do it. You first must understand what finish you had from the start, what kind of scratches you have, and what finish you want to end up with. Not to mention the type of SS/metal you are working with (the harder the metal the more difficult it will be to get out the scratches out without a lot of work). Further, treating a brushed finish (where there are very distinct fine lines in the metal) is going to be much different than treating a buffed finish, which is going to be different than a satin finish.

To your point though, I don't know where I saw 'brushed' to begin with. As you say the Ti Preons come with a high polish. Working with a jeweler's brush pen may be the easiest option for applying a renewed brushed surface to a completely scratched item, but not everyone has one of them.

Perhaps I have misunderstood you - (it may be a good suggestion) but I didn't see the poster with the scratch from the clip saying they wanted a brushed finish - just that they wanted to try to remove the scratch from the Ti Preon - which is (as we now agree) a high polished finish.

I've been looking at these lights for awhile now and have gone back and forth considering the Preon 1 or getting the red kit. It would be primarily for keychain use, what is the durability of the finish when worn with other keys? It seems the titanium kits no longer exist.
