Is the main body of the hilt (the aluminum tube) machine brushed or anodized? I'm just curious because I know aluminum is prone to leave black marks on your hands when handled if it's not sealed in some fashion.

The main body and the endcap are made of an aluminum alloy (EN AW 6082). The other two hilts (Obi and Vader) were made of the same material. I have handled these hilts quite a lot and I never experienced any surface corrosion or black hands. But I‘m no expert in metallurgy, maybe somebody with more knowledge chime in?
