But seem like their reputation at B&B not good. Am thinking of sending it to Services | | Razor Restoration and Replating - RestoredRazors.comRazor Restoration and Replating – RestoredRazors.com as highly recommend by B&B member.
Wah kao! Nickel plate and Rhodium plate at 60 pounds (excluding shipping some more), way to ex liao. In that case, I go for nickel plate or/and chrome locally.

Some like it, some dun like it.

I quite like it and bought 1000 pieces. But have not been using it for the past few months, cus was trying out other blades like concord, gillette super thin and wilkinson sword.

Someone from B&B posted that Supermax Super Platinum is quite similar to Supermax Platinum.

Iso propyl alcohol can get from pharmacy. It's to disinfect nia. No need so concentrated. That's unless you work in lab, then I'd use above 90% grade.

I know Sino Chem sells lab grade ethanol absolute 96%. Quite cheap. Dunno if they sell to walk in tho. Now THIS alcohol cleans like nobody's business.
