Thank You Sir!
Thank you, Gary!
This will be my second Gillette in my collection (aristocrat) . Supposed to be here by Saturday. Gotta do some cleaning up on it, I'll post some before and after pics when I'm done.
very cool Myles,nice 46-7 aristocrat.fresh from the wild they are a smooth ,well balanced mild to mid shaver..congrats.
I used my other beater Probak today with a different shoulder design and found it is much closer to the Goodwill 160 than the New Long Comb like the one I been using the past few days. It also shaves closer besides being more aggressive. When I get a chance I'll take some pictures so you can see the difference. Apparently somewhere along the way the design was tinkered with.
very cool.looking forward.
That assuming it is a 46 - 48 Aristocrat is a really good razor. I've owned and used a lot of different Gillette DE razors and that was one of the few I kept.

Everything you didn't want to know about the US made Gillette Aristocrats.
thanks for the link and info
Just received today and used my British Pre War Tech #44. Nice shaver and I'm liking the Flat Bottoms. This past weeks I'v used the Brit Flat Bottom New everyday except for today. I'm pretty stuck on MDC Rose and I'm a big fan (HUGE) of Old Spice, especially the Original from India. Blades? I've got a million of them but I too am a huge fan of the Gillette Platinum Blue Box kind of guy.. Always use an alum block post shave as well as witch hazel and Thayer's is my main squeeze. I prefer to shave before showering and I always use Noxzema gently massages and about a minute and a half of hot wash rag. Life is good.
And lately I'm using nothing but synthetic shaving brushes. It's hard to beat success ..
awesome shave and pics Mac..i love them as well,fine shavers..they look to be in fantastic condition..
Both Brit Tech and Brit New are in fine mechanical shape, good shavers. The years have polished some of that new finish off a bit but then again, I didn't give $200 plus for either. I love the bling but I'm not willing to shell out that kind of money. I'm chasing the shave.
and they shave well.and both are 75 + years old..
That would make those razors damned darned near as old as me.
