Working on Pics, Love this thread.
Gillette Slim / Polsilver Super iridium

Is this a real Acrat or just in a Acrat box?
This is a New Improved razor, usually in a case labeled as a New Standard. The Blade holder is crossed up too. So no, that is not an Aristocrat.
Nope not an A’crat and @Rev579 got you covered on the details.
Ok gentlemen! The 66 has landed! I will use it tonight and report! I got the senator today at an antique store in another town on my lunch break! Give me your thoughts.

I hope you are prepared to give a side-by-side comparison of the Senator and the No. 66
Man great score
Thank you! Got really lucky.
I can do that. I’m gonna shave with the #66 tonight and the senator I have soaking in warm water and dawn now. It will get a test drive later this week. I’ll put side by side pics later tonight.
You might not put the Senator down after tomorrow.
Ok I have a question. On the shave with it, I have several blades. I really like astra sp and Wilkinson sword classic. Which would you use with the senator?
Now it looks like we are all suffering from RAD. If you could only keep one razor which one would it be? For me it would be my property of us army old type.
I like Astra SP blades and have not yet shaved with any Wilks, so given those choices, I'd try the Wilks just because. I have not had bad luck with any of PPI blades.
Hmm, I would have to simply ignore the question altogether.
My NEW Short Comb. It's my current favorite.

Will do. I have some Israeli blades too that are really good.
Oh no! I would upset all the other razors if I had to choose one!
very cool sir nice crat.. cool senator.. need to find one..next months project..
you are welcome, enjoy the first test drive..
Absolutely beautiful and the Sen is a super nice score! I will go with @Rev579 on the Sen...I got my Sheraton on his recommendation and it is one of the finest razors I own.
