It is amazing, but as I was dragging the photo into view, waiting for gobs of red paint to pick up the rose highlights in the gold, oh, oh, the red tip is a gold tip. Beautiful razor no matter how you view it.
 
Process was:

Electrolysis bath for a LONG time, stripping paint, plating and crap.

LOTS of scrubbing to get ALL of the paint off, and a few runs in the ultrasonic cleaner.

Gold plate throughout, then to the tip: Copper, gold, copper, gold.

Could even be called: 'Red Gold', since the copper content is fairly high.

I like that it is more copper colored than solid red, it is very subtle and tasteful. If this board gets me into one more hobby, I'll go crazy! Can't start to want to replate everything when I see it :lol:
 
That's a sharp looking SS you have there. I love the look of the rose gold versus the enamel from the factory.
