Looks a totally uncared for razor. If you dismantle after each shave, wash and dry, the Karve will simply darken, uniformly. That patina looks like a use and just leave to dry affair.
Exactly - this just looks like dirt to me. Gradual darkening around areas of limited wear can be quite attractive but not this speckled dirt look. Bleurgh
