It's solid brass and will tarnish rather quickly. It doesn't make my hands stinky, but it does make them pretty dirty pretty fast. I suppose it's a good thing to wash your hands ~20 times a day, right? No more skipping that after taking a whiz.

I love mine, but I'd probably get the $18.50 stainless if I were to purchase a second Nemesis.. Maybe. Okay. I'd flip a coin to choose between the brass and SS.

I know the copper one is pretty far down my list. I've already got a copper mod that I made and it does, indeed, make my hands smell like pennies and it actually stains the skin GREEN so a simple wash doesn't resolve the problem.
Rube Goldberg would get a kick out of "temperature control" devices.

This is unequivocally brass PLATED.
I sanded and did a mustard patina on mine and portions of the copper base are easily visible.
The internal threading that was not sanded also became etched by the solution and exposed copper.
