I do believe that vokeys are plated with a very thin layer of kraft cheese - which may be part of the problem.
Yes exactly I had a pair of vokeys and after 2 months wore through the chrome...now I've had my wedge less than a month and you can already see a sweet spot, considering taking off the chrome so that dosnt happen and so it matches my other clubs

If you're starting with a chromed wedge - it will never look as pretty as the raw ones in that link, but you can still use a groove tool to keep the grooves sharp, and if the chrome is wearing off the face you can file and grind the face flat as described. I've done all that with old Hogan wedges that I like - I just haven't done the black oxide surface treatment, but it's functional for now. I may look into blueing the worn (ie bare of chrome) parts of the face and sole - in my mind's eye, I see a guitar-style "sunburst" finish.
