I am a rock climber and I use a lot of aluminum carabieners, and repeling devices. After a day of working with all the aluminum tools my hands are gray. I never use aluminum in cooking for the simple reason that it just comes off to easily and I don't want my body to have to process that.

I do know that golf club manufacturers use acid to turn their etched logo dark so it stands out when polished.
