Gents,

Eh....I was on eBay browsing around and I found a listing for a 4th Generation British Aristocrat Razor with no box.  So I did a little bit of quick research, and I think that means it is a British Model #66 Aristocrat.  I made an offer, and I was EXTREMELY pleased that the seller accepted!

It operates very smoothly, and exactly as it should.  The condition is not mint, but I would  describe it as excellent user grade with a water spot here and there, and slight tarnishing on the bottom.  It is rhodium plated, and there is no plating loss.

Now onto the good stuff!  My current favorite DE razor is my standard Carbon Shaving Co razor with the original handle.  I have never used a British Aristocrat, but after using this once I must say I am very excited!  My first thought was as efficient as my carbon, but slightly more mild.  It delivered the same BBS results, but it felt like a smoother and more comfortable shave.  There is the potential that this will become my favorite DE shaver!

Needless to say, I am really looking forward to tomorrow night’s shave for more testing.  I hope that everyone has a nice weekend!

Thanks Ricardo! Yes...I am very pleased with the condition, and happy to add it to the rotation. Based off of last nights shave it might take a leading role!

The 66 (or 22: same razor, different case) is my go-to. I am currently using it with a Personna 74. Today will be shave #27.

Your looks a very nice example! Enjoy your shaves.

Thanks! That’s a beautiful combo...the 66 and a 74!!! Good gouge on the 22 being the same as 66!

So the British #66 Aristocrat is certainly my new favorite DE!  It beats out the Carbon.
