With a bit of TLC your nib holder should last a very, very long time.  The metal on the holder has been waxed to reduce oxidisation. Over time the metal will age naturally, developing a richer, darker tone. You can choose to embrace this patina or to return it to it’s gleaming best by buffing with supplied polish and cloth cloth until super shiny again!
