Here's a few razors that came in a lot that I'm not interested in keeping. All prices include shipping.

1964 (J4) Slim adjustable. The TTO mechanism works well, as does the adjustable knob. The plating is in very good shape. I cleaned the brush and slightly buffed it with flitz polish. $25, shipped within the CONUS. SOLD

NDC Gillette SuperSpeed. TTO mechanism works well. Plating is in good shape. The razor was cleaned and slightly buffed with flitz polish. $12, shipped within the CONUS. SOLD

1948 (I believe this is correct as the razor doesn't have a date code) Gillette Aristocrat. TTO mechanism works well. There is some plating wear on the doors and handle, but not much on the inside of the head. I cleaned this with warm, soapy water and avoided any metal polish so I didn't remove any of the finish. $25, shipped within the CONUS. SOLD

I'm pretty sure that Aristocrat is a 46-47 because the center bar isn't notched, which they started doing in 48 and also it has two smooth bands (top/bottom) another sign of a 46-47. This is the most sought after version actually, since they shave more aggressively than the 48-50's.
Very nice, GLWS!

You realize CFM would clean that up and sell it for $500.00 and throw in a pack of blades and an old case....Tongue

I'm convinced there is hidden voodoo, subliminal messages or something that forces a small number of people that read CFM listings into temporary insanity and lose control of their actions for a short period of time..otherwise I do not know who in their right mind would purchase his items.

What!? That's a gorgeous Slim! Great shaver too! I absolutely can't believe it's still available.

Gents, noobs, whoever, if you've never experienced a Slim, you need to buy this. I kid you not! It's whatever you want it to be from noob mild to magically aggressive. Fantastic razor, great price.

If I didn't already have a spare Slim and a Fatboy in storage I'd scarf it up in a heartbeat. But how many do I need?

I have another one on its way that's in the case. I may need to try shaving with it before I decide if I want to sell it or not.

Andrew, IMO it's a must to try.

3-4 is approximately SuperSpeed setting. 4-5 might be the OLD or NEW approximation, and there are 4 more open settings that make it more aggressive. I like the Slim more than the Fatboy. Mine doesn't see much use anymore, but only because it's at the back of the shelf and I reach for the R41 or the OLD and NEWS because they're easier to get to (the new factor too). It's a wonderfully aggressive razor set to magical 9.

GLWTS!
