    Very nice, the classic TI #69, French framebacks are some of my favourites, have one of those, passed another along, they are truly superb shavers.

    Keep the scales away from the Barbicide, they can stain them, but make sure you dilute/mix the Barbicide correctly, immerse the razor for 20 minutes, and you'll be good to go....don't touch the blade by removing it, the #69 only came with the one, and you don't want to damage the frame...congrats, that's a real nice one too.

    They are awesome shavers sir, when properly honed. It's your razor but try and be careful like you have been told, it's vintage. Mine came with a spare blade tucked in an inner sleeve.



    That way you had a shave ready spare blade. I guess these were for the traveling gentry. I have completely disassembled and restored. And yes the spare blade is honed too. Now I'll have to use mine for a SOTD. Thanks for sharing.

    So now I'm 50/50 on whether I should disassemble the blade or not 😊🤔🙃

    Suppose I don't disassemble the blade, should I do something extra to wipe the Barbicide from inside the frame? Air sprays and Clippercide aren't an option here.

    Suppose I do dissemble it, and something goes wrong (say the screw breaks), what kind of trouble am I looking at? How hard would it be to remove the stub and find a new fitting screw?

    Awesome cleanup, @MODINE. The extra blade looks like new.

    Honestly man. It looks restored and maintained. I'm guessing the screws been out fairly regular or recently at least. All you can do is try turning it a bit, and if it needs tons of pressure just leave it as not to snap it, if that is your wishes. But if that was me, i'd be removing that blade for sure. No sense in calling it true frame back with interchangeable/removable blades, if you can't remove them. Might as well just went with a faux frameback.
    What if I told you we prearranged to meet here now?

    If you can't take it apart, another option would be seeing if anyone you know has a UV sterilization cabinet. Some friends gave us one to sanitize our baby's stuff, but I haven't used it on my razors (maybe I will now). I've spent so much sanding/polishing my razors and cleaning them with alcohol they should be safe.

    I use Andis Cool Care spray to clean and disinfect after every shave. Hold by the pivot pin while covering your scales and dose her good. Shake out any excess and let air dry. No problems with rust or corrosion. have fun. Sun October 08th - Sat October 14th

    Decided to try disassembling the blade. The screw was actually quite easy to remove, yay!

    Dipped just the blade in Barbicide, rinsed it off, dried with toilet paper and then a hair dryer. Covered it in mineral oil and reassembled the razor.

    Thanks all for the inputs.

    If you're any good with steel work, make up or have made new blades for it. Use that pattern and than can make multiple different points and everything. I'm in the process of hopefully getting one, and definitely a future project for me.
