Just picked this up. I'm trying to figure out a few things as this is my first safety razor.
How can I find out what year this was manufactured?
What blades can I use on this? Will I be limited to valet blades only due to it utilizing the valet cut out on the blade it self to secure it?
My leather strop is somewhat dry. Would it be a bad idea to try to treat the leather with some mink oil or some other leather additive to soften it?
Thanks in advance!
