Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you 
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be 
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item 
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.  All sales final.

many consider to be the most aggressive version of the Aristocrat made. The 
1946-1947 Aristocrat models came with the no-notch center bar and can be 
identified by the smooth bands on the upper and lower portions of the handle 
although there were some variants.

short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed fairly steady production 
until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961. This appears to have been a 
very popular razor in its timIt's a
