Thanks to the re-plating genius of Dave Glynn (restored razors.com)

I present the...

Apologies for the mediocre indoor and subsequently poorly illuminated pics.

I was too excited to share and will attempt some better images soon...

Very nice Ben. Now you have to be extra careful that this Cobra doesn't steel up and bite you.

Ben, it looks gorgeous. I am curious to know if the re-plating changes the feel of it or change the grip, like make it more slippery?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing.

The Black Chrome feels "thicker" than the standard Classic in terms of its tactile quality.

The Gold feels the "smoothest" in terms of glide and friction.

As for grip, they all feel the same. All are smooth and slippery on top and all have a confident feel to the corrugated under side.

Performance wise there is no discernible difference between the Classic and the Black Chrome. The Gold has a lower coefficient of friction and seems to float across the face more lightly and easily...

Lovely black chrome finish, Ben. He did a great job on that. Enjoy your "stealthy" serpant!

Don't forget the rose gold! I'd love to see one in rose gold, the black chrome looks great.

DLC might be nice, but unlikely...

Nickel, then black chrome.
