I have my first handle made of brass. What do I need to know to take care of the visual quality and any tips on long term care?

Much appreciated!

As you know brass is used in plumbing and will not wear out but it will stain...just pick up some MASS or other high quality polish...apply and buff off...will look like new...should be no other concerns.

As I pointed out yesterday in another thread, Citra-Solv, a general-purpose household cleaner for countertops and the like, is excellent for cleaning brass, as well.  Unlike most specialty metal cleaners, Citra-Solv, which is made primarily from the oil in orange peels, is non-abrasive, and therefore may be better suited than abrasive cleaners for cleaning relatively soft brass razor parts, which probably will need to be cleaned more frequently than the handle on the big front door of the attorneys' firm in which you served a term.
