What a crazy Aristocrat day - this morning a seller accepted my offer on the rare 1st generation leather clad rhodium #20 set and this evening I was perusing the UK ebay and stumbled on a great condition 3rd generation #15 set with the blue cloth interior. Had neither of these versions in my collection 17 hous ago o_O

What a lovely collection...and a Great write up........BUT, you just would, wouldn't you, here was I, very content with the razors I have and now I'm feeling the need for an Aristocrat razor, a model that I had previously passed over as "Didn't need"..... That knurling on the handle just beautiful, like an old Bulldog that I have......Must stop this..I really don't need any more razors................Do I?

Haha. Dear William, you know you need it. I can hear it in your voice, you feel the deep settled urge to cross over from the dark side to the garden of Eden. These razors I assure you are worth it. You Britons made the best razors EVER!

And thanks for liking my post, much appreciated, sir!
