1930s Emir Dual Comb travel set (Solingen) - 295 EUR
Between the two world wars the region of Solingen in Germany housed numerous steel/cutlery companies that also made razors. One of these was the Karl Engels company producing the stunning art deco designed EMIR razors.

This very rare travel set holding the coveted dual comb razor is in magnificent condition. Basically like new, both razor and case. Comes with Sonnal blades still in cellophane wrapping.


1957 Rotbart 5031 full set - 130 EUR
This collectable set is in superb condition and comes with original blades, price tag, perfect shipper and everything. Notice the small note on the shipper where the original buyer carefully listed that it was purchased in Germany in November of 1957. This light weight aluminum razor provides a superb mild shave very much like a Tech (but even more efficient).


1948 Gillette Aristocrat #22 set - 250 EUR
Full set with everything matching. 3rd generation razor in like new condition and case very good and unmarked too. Collector’s set priced for condition.

+ Earlier offerings still available:

1936 Gillette Aristocrat 1st gen #15 set, silver plated razor (“pre-#15” set: non-winged centerbar) - 170 EUR
Razor is fine, needs polish but teeth are straight and it is well aligned. Case also nice, a solid early set.

1938 Gillette Aristocrat 1st gen #3 Travelers Set, French set, Importé D’Angleterre, rhodium - 210 EUR
Rare 1st gen traveler set in the French version. Not seen often, I never saw another for sale during the time I’ve been collecting. Condition is fine but not mint. Case has been reglued, i added tons of polish and it closes fine. Razor is rhodium plated with straight teeth. Mechanics are solid. Banks are Gillette branded but the cannisters not. I received this set with the parts as shown/described. Priced for rarity.

1948 French market Gillette Aristocrat 3rd generation set - 130 EUR
This set combination has never been formally confirmed as a matched set but has appeared through the years for sale on French websites in this exact combination. Notably the case is an original French-made Gillette case. This set was bought as-is and is in better condition than usually seen offered. Razor is aligned and plating overall fine though not perfect. In the grand scheme of things one of the rarer Aristocrat sets as it was only sold in France, razor of course identical to any other 3rd gen British Aristocrat.
