Manufactured from 1914 through the 1960's. The Gillette Aristocrat is a rare gem and is the first twist to open model produced by Gillette. The Aristocrat is a higher end model and is somewhat hard to find these days. It comes in several different styles such as gold plated, silver plated, some are twist to open and some are adjustable.
It is rare to find these razors with a date code or a date stamp and there is some speculation that this particular model stopped production in the early 1950's. Even though some say they may have been produced well into the 60's. Some models have a notched center bar which makes blade replacement easier than most, and much faster. The Aristocrat is a bit more expensive than most vintage Gillette's but well worth the money, due to the quality and craftsmanship of the razor. In general, the Aristocrat is known to be an aggressive razor, great if you have a heavy beard. A quality piece that has stood the test of time.
