Protecting the 100 year old Big Fellow Wood Box

Is it time to provide some protection to the 100 year old Razor/Wood Box. I can throw this 1920 Gillette Big Fellow into my Dopp bag without worrying about other items scraping and bumping up against the 100 old wood. I'm thinking of installing a tiny lock on the exterior wood box to protect from theft. A modern day plastic 10 blade with bladebank on back tuck fills the gap nicely.

To protect and maintain the appearance of the wooden box, I'd wipe it down several times a year with a small amount of linseed oil (or similar product) and a soft flannel cloth
