Hello, I'm looking into a timeless razor and trying to decide if I want SS or bronze. How does the patina look? If I clean it, will I be able to keep thr patina off, if I didn't want patina? Thanks!

I have the Timeless 0.38 Bronze. I personally love the bronze. You can polish it to keep the patina away. I keep mine polished because I prefer the polished look myself. It is beautiful very well made razor. Worth every penny in my opinion. I am looking at a SS also. Check their scratch and dent in the razor section, you can save some money. The one I'm interested in saves about $50 over new.

The scratch and dent would save me 60$ which is nice. Thank you.

Keep in mind that the bronze is not just the ss version in bronze.  The bronze and ss razors have a different design.  The ss .68 is my preferred  DE razor.  I did not get good results from the .38 bronze, as it irritated my skin despite the smaller blade gap.  The bronze is, however, a beautiful razor.  I like the patina, but it's easy to periodically polish it off if you prefer shiny bronze.

I have been hesitant on the SS. I know they're different and I really have such great performance form the Bronze, I'm afraid I may not love the SS. I'm not opposed to a more aggressive razor, I use both mild and aggressive with good results.

I haven't used any type of polish, I just wipe it down with a soft cloth.

Ordered Monday and here on Wednesday. Insane. I ordered "scratch and dent" but honestly this looks literally brand new. I'm guessing somebody bought it and returned it almost immediately.

It got here at 8 pm while I was working in the hospital and it's now 10:11pm so I'll use it tomorrow night after my 12 hour shift.

Beautiful razor.  Buying from Timeless is a great experience, because their razors are always in stock and they ship quickly.
