    New to TSD and found this great thread! Here's a couple sets (without blades) that I picked up a couple weeks ago. My first foray into the Vintage razor world and have been really impressed so far.

    1. Aristocrat Jr. (Pat 430030) - this is the 'Canadian special' where the Aristocrat Jr was put into Rocket boxes for the Canadian market. Razor has some brassing on the handle but I didn't really want a show-piece anyway.

    2. The English Flat Bottom Tech (Set #44): Small damage on the box cover and the hinge is cracked but everything is functional. The razor is very clean with no signs of brassing but some minor scuffs/marks.:

    My favourite has been the A.J so far. I think the blade/razor combo I've used with it works better for me so far but I'm still experimenting with different blades. Both shave beautifully.
