Well, if you ask me there is only one single reason to go all-metal, and that is to print with plastics in the 300C+ range, so more or less PEI and PEEK, and for those you more or less need a enclosed heated chamber to print.

For everything else... the current Core design is way better.

    its not the hot end as such which is worn out quickly by abrasive filaments, it is more the tip of the nozzle.

    Like @ultiarjan says, the core is good!

    Brass is a metal but the bottom of the brass nozzle will wear out quickly if you print abrasive filaments.  You can however get a steel nozzle for UM3 cores.  Since you are in canada you should get it at my store: thegr5store.com.
