Favorite is a hard call, but the British OC Aristocrats work very, very well for me.

I just bought a NOS Star with gold plating. I’m looking forward to trying it. The only vintage razors I’ve tried are Gillettes and I’m not a big fan. Hopefully I like the Star, but it’s worth keeping even if I don’t because it has all of the original packaging and instructions and I think it looks pretty cool.

@DayMan, yes I agree completely. It was the look of the handle that attracted me to the Star.

I think I might have seen that NOS one on another forum! If you hadn’t snapped it up, I would have! Congrats on a great buy!

Beautiful may be an understatement in this case.

Bought this used when I got back to wet shaving in 1983.
