I picked this old razor up from a guy on the BST a while back for less than $20. It's not pretty, but it shaves like a dream. That's why I wanted it. I would also like to find an older Aristocrat with an Open Comb + TTO, because I think this was one of Gillette's finest designs. For a 72 year old piece of shaving history, this is a fine tool. This one, I believe, was the last of the open comb TTO razors built by Gillette. Once in a while I see these popping up on ebay, but they're...

I don't think it is flowery, but in general, considering that most growing things produce flowers, then in that sense it is pleasantly reminescent of flowering plants, including the nearby areas where things are blooming in the late...
