Summary Very Good

Assessor Christina

Notes The case is in very good condition. There is one small scratch on the top front, proper left corner. Hinges work well. The razor inside is in fair condition due to the fact that it was used and not properly cleaned. there is a lot of shaving cream residue and the metal is a bit rusty in places.
