It doesn’t look so bad, Mike. What’s your gut telling you?

Brass doesn't rust, the plating is failing. Just shave.  Thumbsup

I agree with Toby.  It's not rust.   The plating has worn off, exposing the underlying brass.  This is referred to as "brassing."   Go ahead and use the razor without any concerns.

I totally agree with what the gentlemen have advised, if the doors line up and close together, the finish doesn't really matter. You have a great shaver.

To me brassing on an old Gillette gives it character, reminds me of the previous fellow (or lady) who used it, and how old it really is.   Biggrin

Yep, history, soul, stuff new razors don't have. Like the blues, the best stuff comes from dead men.  Thumbsup
