The blade is definitely carbon steel with little corrosion resistance. After its first use I thought that I had dried the blade properly. I forgot to oil and put the razor back into its tin case.

A few days later I opened the razor up again and noticed some rust stains. Fortunately I was able to polish them out with 0.25u diamond paste and not leave any noticable marks on the blade.

Lesson learnt with this blade - dry and oil after each use.
