Some consider this the gold standard of DE shavers. These razors are well built and give
wonderful shaves. The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a

Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the
Gillette line of DE razors and, in my opinion, was their flagship razor. True, more upscale
and pricier sets were made, but only for 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 time.

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.
