It doesn’t bother me that it’s Made in China, but the plating is what ended it for me. Too bad as I like the looks of this razor.

Looks a lot like their former offering known as the "World's Finest Safety Razor" . Had one and liked it except for the weight. I prefer lighter razors and that one was heavy. But it did shave very well and made my face happy

What is your issue with the plating on this razor?
Prepare for mind control!
What does this mean: 100% Solid Metal w/ a Stainless Steel Core?

When I looked at the website description they had an image that seemed to highlight the thread post was stainless steel, but not anywhere else:

And then I caught the back of the box from a youtube review (a bit blurry):

Seems to highlight stainless steel only for the threads and a gleaming chrome finish.
