I ordered one from Royal shave....I hope u did too, cause u get the 10% bandb discount and free shipping.....anyways, I purchased mine in dec '11 before my 2012 sabbatical kicked in......It was an ok razor, I can see how people either love or hate it....Mine had no issues whatsoever with rusting, pitting, blade alignment, it was in perfect condition imo. I dont know about the warranty life, but I would assume the initial coverage would come from the vendor you purchased the razor from, if its bad out of the box I mean. good luck with it, it is a very nice razor!
