Help With Cleaning Up Vintage SE Razors
#11
Maas and Flitz are nice. But if you can, get Elsterglanz Universal polish polishing paste. It's finer than even Maas. Speaking from more than a decade of polishing cut-throat razors here. If you have only a thin veneer of plating left, Elsterglanz may be able to save it.

Hey, RobinK! Thanks for the advice! Looks like Elsterglanz is a German product, might be hard to get in the states. I see from your profile that your in Munchen...lovely city! I got to Octoberfest back in 2008, I think it was. Something everyone should experience. I miss Germany!

Just looked and here is a place in Arkansas that carries it.

RobinK do you have any experience with Elsterglanz for polishing stuff like acrylic or other non metallic pieces.

GAW9576 I do. Don't do it. Some kind soul in the US sent me NOVUS. That works exceedingly well. Depending on the state of your non-metallic pieces, toothpaste should work, too, though.

Back to Elsterglanz, it has been keeping these things clean for years. No visible wear or tear. Good stuff.

Thank you. I have had really good luck with MAAS but I think I actually have some NOVUS if that's what I have I'll try it since I'm about out of MAAS.

I've used Mothers for my Esterbrook pen and SR scale restorations.
