I just love the look of it. Well done, Timeless.

Which do you prefer? Polished to a shine or with some character?

I really struggle with this. I want to like it but to me it looks dirty...looks like I need to throw it out. I like the Charcoal Goods razors, but I'm worried about keeping them the way they look. Tarnished a little bit is nice. Tarnished a lot is not. Just my opinion.

I could definitely see that. It has that weathered, worn look that really isn't for everyone in that state.

I don’t mind the looks of brass or copper, but it’s that smell once these metals get wet that I cannot stand. Just bring a wet brass razor to your nose and take a whiff. I will stick to stainless steel razors, thank you very much.

Ah, yes. It does smell like a handful of pennies at times.

I'll just say I joined the CG list and might pass on it as I was aiming at a lvl2 SS.

I notice a very slight smell with some soaps, more than others, but it's fine with me.

I’ve gotten used to the patina and the whiff. It’s part of what makes each razor a unique and fun shaving experience.

I have 2 copper CG razor. I keep them polished with Brasso. I tried to patina one of them but it drove me insane. I polished it back out.

I have a bronze Wolfman set that is turning but not bad. I'd like to polish it but I'd hate to scratch it.

I do like the look of heavy patina....but it clashes with my need for clean and shiny.

I don't polish bronze razors.  The tarnish and patina are part of what I like about  bronze,  brass and copper.

If I wanted my razors to look antique I would just stick with vintage Gillettes.

I can appreciate both. I let the patina run its course and develop its own character.

I don't like the smell of pennies and have to agree if I wanted a vintage razor I'd just go to my closet and pull one off the rack. But, I love the looks of the new age bronze razors but not to own.

@Loot I would be more than happy to take that Wolfman Bronze off your hands when it gets too tarnished for you LOL

Hey! If you want to shine up the wolfman, just disassemble it, and put it in a bowl with coke for an hour...being careful that the pieces don’t touch each other so they don’t scuff. Then just gently polish it with standard brass polish, and it will be good to go!
