    The WEISHI Twist-To-Open (Chinese replica Gillette's - I believe) use a Cuprum Alloy (a form of Bronze - good solid weight) with a Noble Metal Electrolosis for the 9306 series and an aluminium alloy for the 2003M razors - very light.

    In fact I used a 9306 (mine is in matt chrome) this morning with a Wilkins Sword (UK factory) this morning and was plesantly suprised again it is truely an extreemly gentle razor

    IIRC the 1950s Executive was the only American made Gillette that was Rhodium plated. Referring to the first edition of the Executive that came in a clamshell case with a mirror and blade packs. The President is a beautiful razor though. I had one and sold it. Maybe it was nickel plated rather than chrome ? I don't think it was Rhodium though. Of course the British Aristocrat Gillettes were.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.
