    I have not been collecting long & only tried a few razors, Wilkinson razor from my 7 day set, Rolls Razor & my 1920 Gillette single ring. I have a 1949 Gillette Super Speed not yet used & a 1938 Gillette Aristocrat that has never been used, it still has its rhodium plated tag on the handle. 1938 Gillette Aristocrat DE TTO .JPG

    Does not look like yours has been used either I am amazed that so many razors have survived in mint or near mint condition. Do you think it's that people used to look after things better in them days?

    yes,only the rich owned these razor sets back when new.this razors price would be near a weeks wages for a moderately paid worker 1n 1939.many were christmas gifts and stashed away as well..some then sat in someones collection for decades after the fact..there are not many of us that have these razors..

    Tag does not mean the razor is unused.

    Menthol Monday's Cold Water Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #451 Silvertip Badger
    1905 Gillette Double Ring
    Nacet Stainless
    CWR
    Mennen Skin Bracer

    The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #450 Silvertip Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1905 Gillette Double Ring and the Nacet Stainless blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Mennen Skin Bracer After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
