Shining Vintage Straight Razors

I have some vintage straight razors with hollow ground blades. These are top of the line Solingen or Sheffield steel. There is no rust on the blade, but they have a blackened patina to them instead of the silver shiny surface of when they were new. How do I get them back to the new look?

If they are vintage & you don't want to USE them - don't touch the patina - it could reduce their value.
