    Many people would start cleaning with some 0000 steel wool and WD40. This will loosen the active rust and not score the steel. After that, some metal polish such as flitz or Maas on a cloth can do wonders. Not sure where you are located but if you post that up I suspect someone here will be willing to help, as well as hone the blade up. I know if you were in NJ, myself as well as several others would offer.

    I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada. That's definitely somewhere to start, thanks so much! All of you have been so nice here!

    Oh that complicates things a bit. Due to Canadian customs, you should probably try to find someone in Canada to help you or you may be presented with a not so inconsequential bill to get your razors back!
    The easy road is rarely rewarding.

    Hi - I'm in Toronto, and there are a few members out in Nova Scotia, was there a few years ago, what a great place, so beautiful there.

    If you want to just get them cleaned up, as many have suggested here some Flitz or Maas metal polish would be a great start, just make sure when you're done, they are aboslutely dry, tissue between the handles (scales) and you've let the razors dry in the air.

    If you want them restored, totally cleaned up, honed (sharpened), to a restored state, let me know, and I will post the info for the person who restores razors for me and many others throughout the world, he's very good and in Toronto, Ontario.

    Cheers, and those are some very nice razors!
