The plating on the head is in remarkable nick for a razor that was found with an old Gillette Blue from the 1930's still in it. Barrel and handle suffers plating loss. Should be shave ready now that it has been cleaned up Smile

That's beautiful.  You could go a step further, but it looks great as it is.

Good job on the cleanup. Personally I've not had much luck with cleaning a razor to the degree of your success with the same ingredients . I suspect you put in quite a bit more elbow grease than I probably did, however.

It was a sunny morning, sitting outside before the Better Half awoke... so it might been quite a bit of elbow grease Tongue

I enjoyed the process though Smile

Well done. 
A splash of vinegar, hot water, a long soak followed by the toothbrush and soap will get ride of the bits of green left. 
Enjoy.

No problem with that at all! Just goes to show I should stick with it a bit more! Wink

Sometimes I don't know what I like best; the shaving or the buying old one and scrubbing the hell out of them to see how good I can get them. It's like looking for the prize in a box of Cracker Jacks.

Fantastic!  Thumbsup Love the OLD type, best DE razor ever made! That is the proper way to clean one, folks these days tend to go nuts with chemicals and abrasives. I've seen too many razors that survived the test of time, only to be ruined while "cleaning", ebay sellers are the worst! Bravo my friend!  Thumbup

Elbow grease beats chemicals every time - and as you point out it is more gentle on the surface as well Smile
