Thread: Gold Merkur

  1. #1

    Default Gold Merkur

    My blades rust wherever they contact the gold surface. No such problem with the chrome razor. Anyone else have this problem?

    I have a Gold HD and a Gold slant and never had that problem with either. What kind of blade are you using? Has it happened with more than one brand?

    I have had this happen in gold Gillettes, though I can't explain why it happens or if it is actually rust or just discolouration.

    Are you using Treet blades? These tend to rust.

    I have a gold merkur that I use for travel and have never had that experience.

    I have a Gold HD and use Derby blades with no rust problems
