Available now at WCS are complete razors designed (not made by Brian) out of 303 stainless steel. WCS has been selling the handles only but now its a complete razor. By the decription they are mild but efficient razors. Not sure if level 1 or level 2. The great part about this is the price under $40 (+ shipping if you don't spend at least $45)

I believe you are correct. 
They describe their handle in lots of detail but don’t do the same for the head.

yeah, I don't like it when companies do that as it can be deceiving.

You can tell the heads and handles don’t match but it would be nice for them to state what the head is made from.
Still a great deal though.

If I'm not mistaken the head is chrome over zinc alloy.

Very deceiving on the part of WCS. The email makes it sound like an all stainless steel razor but the decription on their website says this "WCS Razor Head Set & WCS CNC Handle Safety Razor Designed by Charcoal Goods"

these are not new. About a year old I think. I guess WCS just copy pasted the old email.

Agreed its very aggravating. You see tons of companies doing that. Throwing out the words "stainless" and "cnc machined" without going into detail so the buyer assumes that about the entire razor.

As I recall several years ago (Sept 2017) I bought my first "high end" razor from WCS. It was from the collaboration with Brian of Charcoal Goods which had those exact SS handles. It was $180 and came in a wooden box with WCS branding. The reason I had gotten it was there was actual CG was more expensive, stock was limited and he was going to a waiting list (lasted almost a year before Brian scrapped it). Now that WCS-CG made razor included a head made by Brian as well and years later I discussed the shave quality with Brian who said it was similar to his Level1.

WCS has been selling these WCS-CG handles periodically without heads over the last 3 years. These current razors either have those left over handles or Brian made more handles for WCS. I do not think the heads are the matted CG SS heads (by picture or description). BTW that 2017 collaboration had a very smooth and comfortable shave.
