Up for trade initially for some hardware, be that nice razors or brushes. A made in England open comb Aristocrat with case. This was one of those grail razors I sought from afar but unfortunately the shave is a touch too aggressive for me.

Hopefully the photos show the overall condition but I'd say it was a fair user grade condition with some plate loss. The mechanism is showing its age and probably wants looking at by someone with more knowledge than myself. One door is a little lazy and doesn't quite close down as tight as the other but this doesn't affect the shave.

I am considering trades at first but will list a sale price if no suitable offers are received. Please send me a PM with your trade offer. This will be listed elsewhere. I am based in the UK.

So it looks like the end teeth are bent down on all four corners or is it only one side.  A little hard to tell if both sides have been photographed or only one.

Thanks

Looking at the litle 'circular bits' under the base, they are different in the two 'edge on' photos ... I think both sides of the razor were photographed.  

Is the 'down turn' real?  Or an optical illusion due to the way we're looking at it?

These old tto oc suffer from frowning. I have had several sheratons, senators, Aristocrats that have had frowning if the teeth. The ones I kept for myself I gently bent back. But from what I've seen, it's fairly common.

Sorry I missed all these comments. There does appear to be a uniform frown to the base plate. I've spoken with a few people who have said it was a common trait of this particular razor. I'm pretty open to anything in trade really as I find this a bit too aggressive for my liking.
