Metal is quite savage for distributing the force of impact, showing the dents, and making your hands stick in the freezing cold. I think we've established now that something made according to the delights of organic chemistry is a bit better on the outside. Not least because it can be made really cheap and is easily copied by third party manufacturers if they are interested.
