Okay I admit it....when it comes to my razors, I'm quite anal in trying to keep them looking as new as possible.  Recently, I noticed some minor scratches on my BBS-1 and Wolfman (polished) head and base plate.  My first thought was to reach out to James at Wolfman to see if he could recommend a product that might remove minor scratches and he suggested Flitz Liquid Metal Polish---he wouldn't swear by it but thought it might work...so I called Flitz customer service (262-534-5898 in WI) explained my dilemma and they confirmed Flitz Liquid Metal Polish (Green Formulation) combined with their Microfiber cloth should do the trick.  Well today the product(s) arrived and within minutes the head and base plate looked like new.  To some this might sound silly....to me.....well it put a smile on my face. To my fellow TSN members---good luck and happy shaving and to James and Flitz--THANKS AGAIN!

I used Flitz on a pair of Ever-Ready 1924's recently. Brought them right back to life, one of them has some minor wear, but looks and shaves great, the other looks brand new! Great stuff!

Any pictures?  Nice to see classic razors looking their best.

I personally like my walnut media tumbler.  It does an excellent job will remaining gentle on the plating, especially more delicate gold plating.  Works well on all by my adjustable Gillettes.

"Peek" brand metal polish is also good.  I read about it on another forum where the op used it to polish up a Fat Handle Tech.  I bought some at my local auto parts dealer and have used it to bring all my oldies to a brilliant shine.

I notice that Flitz says, "Do not use on eletroplated metals". Wonder how that impacts vintage razors? Perhaps it's just a CYA move on their part. I guess just the mechanical action of the polishimg, alone, could remove some plating from the razor no matter if Flitz was used or not.

I have used it on several vintage Gillette and GEM razors without issue, it is a very mild abrasive compound so I am thinking if you used it alot on a razor over time it might wear them the plating but I'm thinking it would take a long time.
