There is a plate that is plastic with a chrome plate covering that is "split" very unobtrusively. It looks good at initial install, but I don't know that the chrome plating will hold up over time.

I use a el cheapo diamond blade in my 4 1/2" angle grinder, or the thin metal cutting blades. They cut faster, but you will wear them down and need to put a new one on rather quickly.
