If it could be done, would you find ZC plating on, say, a Slim to be handsome or ugly? Even if it isnt ringing any bells, you've seen ZC plating. It is that goldish-green, iridescent coating often found on throwaway assembly tools, cheap furniture fittings and such... Personally, I think it would make for an unappealing razor but I'd have to see one first. And maybe it has been done already and I just have never seen one.
