Hello, I recently picked up this razor an antique shop and would like some info on it. From what i can tell it is brass, (at one time may have had a gold coating) Old Type, open comb, solid ball type. Somthings I would like to know is, How old is it? and how aggressive is it?. I am a DE Wet shaving noob and am just wondering if I should even try to shave with it now, I have a Merkur 23c now. Also the handle is split up near the head, Can I just solder the parts back together. I will get pics up asap.
