On the hunt in PHX today. Spent about an hour at Razor Emporium. Matt P was kind enough to give me a tour of his shop...absolutely amazing.

Got my hands on a Rex and will be saving up for it. Bought some unneeded supplies, of course.

Decided to hit some antiques stores and picked this up for $58....

How’d I do? What is this? Made in England...

You paid $58 for a Gillette No.58 set!

Enjoy!

Yeah. It's a very nice razor.

There are two variants, brass and aluminum with chromed brass doors. The latter is very rare. I had both of them for some time. The aluminum I had was NOS.

It's considered an english Aristocrat. The opening mechaning should be very smooth. Not like the Flare Tips for example.

The price you paid seems fair to me, but not great, considering the fact that you bought it from an antique shop. But it is worth close to $100, IMHO.

How might I identify the one I have? Feels pretty heavy. I haven’t cleaned it up yet so it’s hard to tell.

Don't worry. It's definitely a brass 58. Look at the knurling of the handle and visit mr-razor site.
