    I just saw this fatboy on eBay. It is an auction, so I am not linking to it. Do you think it will clean up ok?

    A little scrubbing bubbles and it will be good as new. seriously I would pass on that one.

    That's the worst looking razor u have ever seen, but at the right price Everything has value. I'm not 100% sure it would clean up, but you could certainly clean it quite a bit and I'm guessing it would work again.

    Or heck...send it to Delta echo razors for a good laugh.

    I've seen it and I can't believe there are bids on it.

    I would so take a shot at restoring that, yes I would. There may be chunks of missing plating but I'll bet mechanically the thing would work fairly well because it's been encased and sealed under all that scale.

    Doesn't patina add value?

    It's up to $18 now. The seller states that it was found underwater.

    A little scrubbing bubbles and then lube it with rendered penguin fat and it'll probably work fine

    I think in this case even rendered penguin fat would not make this dog hunt.

    It's a cream puff. Knock off the dust, crank it up to 9, and shave!

    It's a disgusting chunk of corroded brass, trash it. It's not as if there aren't plenty of good condition vintage razors out there.

    The plating is probably a write-off as it would potentially take some harsher chemicals to break down the scale. (I don't think hot water and Dawn alone is going to get us there.) I almost wonder if something like electrolytical rust removal might work.
