Oil on new razor blades?

Hey guys,

I started using a DE razor about 3 weeks ago and I'm absolutely loving the shaving process. When I'm opening the wax paper for my new blade, I notice there is some oil/vaseline type goop on the center of the blade. Should I try and remove this or is this normal? Both Merkur and Feather blades have this stuff on them when they are brand new.

Also as a side note, I actually had to re-adjust the new Feather blade I put in today because when I tightened the top of my razor, the blade moved slightly off dead center. Haven't noticed that while using the Merkur's. Thanks!
