    Default The Patina Arena

    Noticed the absence of a club specifically for razor's featuring a natural patina of age so may I present:

    The Patina Arena!

    (Excuse the weak reference ;-))

    This does not include razors that are simply rusty!

    So, without further delay, a razor to kick things off..


    Talk about Patina!

    Heres a beautiful personalised Bengall courtesy of one Alf baker formerly of Dunedin, New Zealand.

    Note the markings on both sides of the blade.

    Cheers!

    There is one called The Rustics, but I like the Patina name better

    90% of my razors would be here haha as I love old blades and don't care much for polish (or stainless)

    Here's my John Primble India Steel, which has a nice patina on it. My apologies for the poor image quality, I am new to this and I don't have a very good camera. Also, don't worry, that's a stray drop of mineral oil and NOT water.

    Ahh, ok didn't spot Oz' Rustique's thread. Oh well, I'll let the mods decide if its worth having two similar threads. Sorry Oz!

    No problemo amigo. Just stumbled onto this.
    Probably just as well to keep out the rusty riff-raff

    I'll play along- A Wade & Butcher FBU unrestored and with the exception of honing, in completely original condition. Original pins, scales, and patina.
