Today was a great day, received two new razors and a new brush.

Gillette Aristocrat No14 - late 1930s. This is a really good one, fantastic head an face shave with a feather blade!

Gillette Executive - 1949. Tried this one for a second shave today, seems to be a good shaver, difficult to say as there wasn't much to remove.

Finally a Simpson Tulip 2 in 2band, impressed with how this brush performed (face lathering).

Nice additions and the razors look to be in fine shape. Now I'm a bit rusty after slowing down my collecting train a while back but isn't that a #15?

Congrats!

I was told a 14, but it's possible I'm not a collector so my knowledge is rather limited on DE's. Rodium plated. Marked Brit. Pat. No. 400 621 under the head. Brit. Pat. No. 430 030 on handle.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
