Price is just a number. The important thing to remember is that it "caught your eye" to the point where you wanted to purchase it. The "New" is a crowd favorite here and with the right modern blade will provide you with some great shaves. Clean it up and enjoy it!
Very true words. I think once I get it cleaned up a bit, an Astra blade is going in it and I'll check it out. Is it copper or just plated? If plated, any suggestions on having it fully restored (new plating and all). I'm thinking that would make it ideal. Thoughts?
