This particular Fatboy has been restored back to its former glory and replated in shiny nickel.

The Fatboy  is adjustable meaning you can choose the level of aggressiveness which best suits your needs. Stamped 'MADE IN USA E4 Reg US PAT OFF'. E4 is coding, E tells us the razor was made in 1959 and 4 means the razor was made in the final quarter of that year.

The adjustment mechanism clicks reassuringly into place as it should. The TTO butterfly doors open and close as they did back in 1959.

This razor is 100% shave ready. It's increasingly hard to find a Fatboy good condition these days without paying over £150.00 on eBay for a non-restored version.
This razor is fully restored, it will last another 57 years if looked after. Highly recommended.

Compatible with this Bullet Razor Stand

WE SAY


Is the Gillette Fatboy the best safety razor ever? A lot of people think so and who are we to argue with them? It's certainly up there with Hoffritz, Red Ring Eclipse and the famous Gillette Slim.


PRODUCT DETAILS


Fatboy's are getting increasingly difficult to source especially ones in good working order. A restored one in the pristine condition that this one is in is one to be treasured.
Total length: 88mm
Handle Length: 77mm
Handle diameter at its widest part: 13mm
This particular razor has been fully restored, it was stripped down, sonically cleaned then replated in shiny nickel. The finish on this razor is very shiny and bright. As you would expect, the finish is very shiny and bright, the adjustment numbers are intact and black and the red indicator button has been repainted.


INGREDIENTS


Metal alloy re-plated in shiny nickel

A razor that is 57 years old, made back when we used real money (£ s d) & when we never used the political correctness rot we have today, so the very un PC Fatboy is for me the finest safety razor ever made. Put this up against a modern razor no contest, this old timer will wipe the floor with it. This razor can tackle any type of stubble no matter how heavy the growth with ease. Gillette set the bar so high for this razor back in 1958 that new razors today are still playing catch up. A brilliant bit of kit.
