    Some time ago, I purchased a Timeless Bronze razor. I love it and was wondering how many owners of the Bronze prefer it patina'd and how many like it to keep it's polished look. I myself tried the patina route, but I have OCD when it comes to keeping things shiny and looking like new, so today I polished it back to (almost) new condition. How do you like your Bronze to look?

    I don't have the Timeless Bronze yet, but I plan on one soon. I did have a Krave for awhile, which is brass and I much preferred keeping it polished.
    When I get the Timeless Bronze, I will be doing the same. There are stages, when patina look nice, but for the most part, it just looks dirty.

    Agreed. I tried to like the patina, just couldn't do it. It went for a long time because I was trying to clean it by hand. A few weeks or so ago, I bought a buffing wheel for my bench grinder and tried it. Now I can get the razor back to looking new in about 10 min.

    I had one. Shaves great. Couldn't stand the tarnishing. Looks lousy when tarnished. I polished and polished and polished to keep the razor looking good. Sold it! I would not call that PATINA!

    I've seen a couple of Timeless bronze razors where the owner had it a) Nickel plated, b) Cerakoted.
    Both looked great, but I preferred the Nickel.
    Maybe Gold plate (or Rhodium) would be good too.
    End of problem although you would have nearly doubled the price of the razor.
    I think I'll stick to my Stainless (modern) and my Gold (vintage).
