If you keep brass clean, but not polished, it looks great and feels clean, and doesn't stink. I'm not really anti-stainless, I just don't think it's a good choice for razors. Machine marks used to be a sign of cheap manufacture, or wartime production, now it's seen as a badge of honor worthy of higher prices. Stainless is tough on tooling and more difficult to polish, and doesn't hold a polish well. I'm fine with you fellas having stainless razors, you just can't convince me that it's somehow better. Oh, and brass is heavier than stainless steel, doesn't feel as cold to the touch, and even when bare and polished it isn't slippery.That is true, brass is much more corrosion resistant than SS and is an argument in favour of it being the best material. With that said, uncoated SS is more than corrosion resistant enough to face your average bathroom without worrying and it'll still look good doing it. As long as you're not storing it in sea water it'll be fine. While it is purely aesthetic brass looks grungy pretty quickly if you don't keep it polished.
I'm not a fan of coated steel razors, if I'm buying steel I want to see it.
I'm not wanting to argue with anyone, this is just my opinion.
