    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    I've seen them on Amazon too. Around $5 for 4 double-sided picks. I should probably grab a pack...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Oh sorry about that, I didn't mean to offend, if I did. The second half of my reply wasn't directed at you, but to everyone reading it. Hope there's no hard feelings. Just thought I'd clarify. :thumbup:

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    UPDATE: Be VERY careful when using Nevr-Dull metal polish. I decided to completely clean up my Ever Ready razor with the polish and finally get rid of the little oxidation/corrosion left on the top and back of the razor. For any of you that don't know, Nevr-Dull polish is pretty much what seems...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Also if you're using Nevr-Dull polish on your razors (can be found in the Walmart automotive cleaners section) don't use it on gold plated razors! It says it can be used on all metals, including gold but I didn't read the back and it turned the top of my gold-plated Contract Tech a bronze-ish...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Before and after pictures: Overall, I think I did a decent job for my first time, The Ever Ready and Super Speed both cleaned up nicely but I ran into a few problems that I couldn't get rid of on the plastic-handled Super Speed but I'll just leave it like that. They wouldn't come off with...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Shaved for the first time today with the Ever Ready, and boy was I impressed! I got some shaving blades from CVS with the "American Shaving Company" stamped on the plastic box and that razor shaves like a champ. I think I prefer it over all the others, though the gold-plated Contract Tech comes...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Ah well, I was saying rust for the sake of simplicity, but it probably would've been better if I said corrosion or oxidation. Sorry again for my misuse of the proper terms, I know it can get confusing.

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    I just thought about it and well, how about some fine steel wool to take off the rust? I don't imagine it could harm the plating (or what's left on some of them), given that the wire is so thin. I could be wrong though. Has anyone tried it?

    Just looked it up and yup, that's my razor. Looks just like it and the color is just right.

    Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla AS

    I have the Special Reserve, Original, VI Bay Rum, and Vanilla. Every one of them has their own little 'quirks' that I like so I just choose one of my aftershaves based on how I'm feeling at the moment. Actually, I'm wearing the Bay rum right now. :001_cool: I've also been meaning to give the...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    I don't know, the Weishi looks too dark and reflective, whereas mine has little to no reflection.

    Just bought my first SE razor blade and I have some questions

    I feel sorry that some people had to learn this through personal experience. But hey, way to take one for the team! We make mistakes, then share them on here so nobody else has to make them.

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    I know this is off-topic, but I hope you guys don't mind if I post another picture of my first DE razor for identification. My brother got it for me about 2 years ago for about $40 but I never knew what brand or model it was. Maybe today will be the day where the truth is revealed. It's...

    Just bought my first SE razor blade and I have some questions

    Thank, I'll definitely check it out. I tried cutting some of the hairs on my arm with the box cutter blade and it didn't do that good of a job, guess I should have tried that first.

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Oh my mistake, I thought you just meant the Ever Ready was plated brass, not all of them. Nice to know though, and at least now I'll know what I'm talking about. Mind if I ask? But how do you know all of this?

    Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla AS

    I'm wearing it more often now, I put it on 2 days ago and I couldn't quite catch the 'skunky' smell I got from it before. I like it overall, and like the rest of my aftershaves, it will always have a place in my cabinet. I'm glad you all had a better experience with it than I did.

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Here's a couple pics of the current condition of the razors: You can see on the brass razor, it looks like a lot of the plating has been worn off and revealed some sort of brownish rust or tarnish underneath and the flat parts on the steel razors are cleaning up pretty nicely except for a...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    I don't see why they wouldn't be. All the parts are working perfectly, and nothing is rusted shut. Believe it or not, most of the junk on the razors is dust, dirt, grime and rust, most of which has cleaned up very well except for some minor spots. But if you were referring to the physical...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    The simple wash/scrub technique is working very well for any loose rust, dirt, and grime, but not very well for the really old bluish-colored rust, or the gunk in the deep pockets of the handles, both of which are just sitting there. The toothbrush doesn't seem to work well in those areas... Any...

    Bought a couple of vintage razors and need help identifying them

    Wow that was quick! Thanks nuclearblast! I'm trying to clean up the Ever Ready right now. I have it lying in a hot bath with some Simple Green but there's still a lot of gunk and some blue-ish rust on it. Should I take a bronze brush to it or will it mess up the steel? I know the plastic handle...
