Hello group. Paul here. Decided to try wet shaving and found this forum. Really hooked on the nastalgia and ritual of it. Currently waiting on my 1st DE to arrive. I ordered a Merkur 34c and a blade assortment of 7 different brands. I recently found my dads old DE from when he was a submariner. Hopefully I can post a pic. Its in a small black case and is gold in finish. It needs major cleaning and I would love some guidance on how to remove the green tarnish.
  Also....My razor comes with a cheap brush (Country Uncle Shaving Brush - Deluxe Pure Badger ). Will this brush suffice or would something else be better?


Here is my Dad's or more possibly Granddad's razor.... Can anyone identify it? How do i clean it up?
Thanks.[Image: EY5BUgC.jpg]

Welcome to TSN Paul.  I think for starting out you are fine.  That is a good razor and the badger brush will give you an idea, and then you can maybe upgrade if so you desire.

Enjoy the ride.

Did you get a soap also?
