Up for sale today is a very nice 1935-1952 empire Wilkinson 7 day set. It is in very good condition, comes complete with strop, 7 blades labeled each day of the week, blade case, strop holder, set case and 6 spare blades, 2 of which are NOS unused and sealed in paper wrapper, a third  sealed in the wax wrapper  found underneath the paper wrapper, and 3 opened additional blades. These are hollow ground blades much different than traditional SE disposable blades. The razor itself is fully functional and is adjustable for aggression as well, plating is very nice ,, there is very minor brassing on the 2 outer guards, outside of the roller guard and a touch on the the top of the head where the razor blade sits, I tried to show this but it is only noticeable in certain lights. These sets are commonly found on eBay but rarely in this nice of condition and I havent seen NOS blades offered for these razors before. If you look closely the 1 blade in the wrapper appears to have surface rust along the spine, I cannot tell if it is grease that is packed on the blades from the factory or actual surface rust, I will say that a lot of the used blades had this same appearance before I cleaned them up and it was just grease that was a brownish orangish color. The case still has a nice mirror like finish, some flea bites and scratches as well that I tried showing as well. The strop is still nice supple leather, the strop holder has a touch of brownish residue on the inside, plating on the outside is very nice, a touch of bubbling in a few areas.

I am asking $125 now $105  now $95 now 85 shipped for the entire set, I believe this is a very fair price giving the extra blades and especially the NOS blades. Some have modified SE disposable blades to fit these razors as well for those that would prefer to go that route. Pics will be in post #2, please let me know if you have any questions via pm

Just a few things, the brassing is very visible in pic 3 of the 2nd post, there is hardly any and only visible to a discerning eye.

The blades are reusable hollow ground blades as well, they are not disposable. For information regarding use of sent disposable blades, a quick Google search will provide details on other shave forums, I believe it is against forum rules to provide links which is why I haven't done so.

It is adjustable via a screw on the back of the razor to make this a mild or aggressive shave depending on your preference.
