Very nice collection. I hope you use them all. You have great collection (read this as: "you are set" or "it would be a shame not to continue adding", as needed)   Thumbsup

Do you know if the English Aristocrat Deluxe set is the same razor as the 66/22 with the gold plating?

I believe it's the same razor as the 66 but mine has gold plating

Oh I have used them all. None of my razors are display pieces or in pristine condition. In my mind, if they don't shave well for me, I get rid of them. I'm currently doing a weekly focus where I use one razor a week to find which ones truly don't give me a good shave. Im currently concentrating on OC razor. So far the single ring didn't make the cut.

Great. I like to use them as well. I do something similar but with a shorter 3-day-use, unless I feel like using it more and str8 weekends. I have a single ring on my "to try" list. FWIW, they say these are one of the few that work better with a very steep angle (handle parallel to your face).

I haven't been able to get a good shave with the single ring. To me, it feels very aggressive. My face is usually very raw after the shave.

So far my favorites are the fat handle tech. I have 3 of them and they are my go to. I'll usually reach for them when my shave is going bad. So they are alway in standby. My second would be the 46-47 aristocrat.

Vintage - I love my Gillette New Long Comb (LC). I think everyone should have one, I much prefer it to my Slim adjustable!
