Razor Clean Up Part 3:

Well I just got through using the carbon steel wire brush attachment on my Gold Dollar 208, 66 and Gold Monkey triple 6 straight razors and it done a good job at cleaning up the minor scratches and producing a nice shine to them but from where I've had to do so much grinding, it's going to take quite a bit more than a single wire brush session to get these razors where I want them:

Here's a close up of the label that came with the packaging for those whom are wondering what the part number is for this attachment:
