Hi All

This 1948 beauty I picked up from Tasmania, the Apple Isle. Superb condition and, as you can see, came with case. (I also have the #21 in the metal case, or, if you prefer, the #15).  


I hadn't realised the #21 came in a smaller case than the #16 that I have (and there are other cases for the #16, too). From the attached photos, you can see the difference between the two black cases. 


Enjoy

The razor looks great but those cases from the outside look just spectacular

I am uncertain as to which British (English) Aristocrat I prefer to shave with. Each has its own character. I am currently getting very used to a #22 and it does a perfectly good, no, very good job. But for a closed comb, I think the #16 gets the nod from me. The #21 is a very, very close second. I think mood comes into these things too.

As you hvace experienced the 22 (the same as the 66) is a mild shaver the 16 and 21 are very similar in shave

Lately I have been keeping an eye out for another Popular Model (45, 47, etc). Same head as the OC #15 Aristocrat, beautiful knurling, slimmer handle. often overlooked by vintage razor seekers. I have one. It's a work of art.
