36 Aristocrat! Pic heavy!

Well, I finally got a 36 Aristocrat and I couldn't be happier! It also has it's original metal case and blade holder. The interior fabric has seen better days, but is intact for the most part.
The razor itself is in fantastic shape. Very little plate loss, all of the teeth are straight, and it opens and closes smoothly.
I loaded a Shark Super Chrome blade into it today and got a very nice BBS shave. It performs very similar to my Senator and Sheraton.

The Pictures Look Great and I'm sure they don't do it justice
My Favorite Razor By far (thanks BB again).
Great Shaves are in Your Hand Dave !
 
What really makes this razor stand out is the handle knurling, they are truly stunning. I wish Gillette would have also made a US version like this but with a safety bar, like they did with the British versions.
 
That is a thing of beauty.

Very nice, David! That's one on my short list.

That's a beautiful razor! It looks to be in excellent condition.



Great pics of quality from a bygone era. Pre-China & pre-plastic

Great score!

Nice. I love that handle style.

That's a fine looking razor. Nice you have the complete set. :thumbup1:
