I completely agree with this!
All razors should be shiny and the relative advantage of one razor over another is how well it is polished while still staying in spec.
I'm not a fan of the bead blasted/matte look. RazoRock's chemical polishing + light buffing is a better option for a minimally destructive finish. At least it looks almost shiny.
Straight off the lathe shouldn't leave the factory！
That's why we provide options. It's all personal taste.
