    Normally, I would have shaved with my 48-50 Aristocrat on my mom's birthday, however she was amazed by this razor, so I took it off the shelf for her. It gets used 1/month at least. The razor was priced at ~$20, if I remember correctly.
    "Do you know what you have here?"
    "No."
    I told her what it was and possibly worth, which was more than I could do. She asked me what I would be able to pay for it(which was less).
    She let me buy it for what I could manage.
    Easily the most exciting day in my "vintage razor moments".

    New Deluxe Belmont / Nacet
    Wonderful shave. I’m trying the New Deluxe, on loan from a friend. I now will be looking to buy a New Deluxe Belmont, it’s a terrific Razor!

    Today's shave, a New long comb with Bic blade. Same result as the Otto Roth when paired with the Bic blade. I remember this being a better overall shave with this blade. Maybe my expectations were lower or fault memory either way The New DeLuxe thus far is best of the lot using a Bic blade. Next up the Ladas blade in this razor for tomorrow.

    The Otto Roth is a New LC, just branded differently and with a thinner handle.

    What is it for you, the handle and head combination or just the new deluxe head, that you like the most?

    I've used the New Deluxe Belmont 3 - 4 times now, always with the handle/head combination. I haven't tried it with a different handle, I suppose I will at some point. So for now, to answer your question, it is the combination of the handle & head that provides the supremely smooth, efficient shave.

    The NEW Deluxe is a great shaving head. I compare it favorably to the Short Comb, which I prefer over the Long Comb. The Deluxe come in 2 different variations, usually referred to as the 17mm and 15mm. I’ve not tried the 15, but won’t part with my 17’s. I’ll try and post the mass differences among the LC, SC, and 17mm Deluxe tonight. For the sake of balance, some prefer a heavier handle with a heavier head.
