A day off work, placed a fairly low bid on a certain bidding site. A few hours later I checked my phone messages and was genuinely surprised to learn that I had won this beauty! Re-plated by the previous owner, looks flawless. Have a great weekend all
Absolutely stunning! What a beautiful razor. Congratulations.I finally got my first 1.gen British 'Aristocrat' for the collection so now I got all four
The razor and case looked pretty good when I received it, but for sure deserved a little of my special love

I’m a sucker for brass razors. I would love to own one of these someday. Enjoy!
Could somebody help me out on this? Not sure exactly what I got, but I got it cheap lol ! I just recently got a bad case of vintage RAD, but I'm no aficionado yet! I picked up this guy, a Tech, and a travel Tech. It's not in perfect shape but it's pretty decent. I couldn't find a date code, so if somebody knows where to look let me know!
Tl;dr what is it?

Most likely 1920's ball end old type. A beautiful shaver to use. Congratulations.
Awesome! Thanks guys! I really like the look and feel of it! It has a very small crack in the handle (maybe 1mm) that is barely noticeable. But that's okay, I don't collect things just to collect and/or resell, I'm a user. And this baby is gonna get used!!!
I am sorry to disappoint you, but that crack can get bigger with use. One day the handle might just fall apart.Awesome! Thanks guys! I really like the look and feel of it!
