Nickel Plating to Prevent Rust


I have a rapier hilt that I fight with and it will build up rust very quickly. I have heard that electroless nickel plating can help prevent rust. How much abuse can this plating take and is there something more durable than nickel plating?

There are many ways to prevent corrosion, but nickel plating will probably look the best. Electroless nickel specifically can be made very hard and durable. I suggest you take the hilt over to a local electroless nickel plater and have them give you a quote. The cost will be high, but you should get it professionally done.
