The celebrated fatboy adjustable razor, a must have for any wet shaver! Gillette's adjustable generation razor known as the fatboy has maintained a longstanding popularity, as its unique heft, durability and classic 'cool' factor have made it one of the most sought after safety razors ever created. The smooth butterfly doors, adjustable dial and TTO or twist to open mechanism all make the Gillette Fatboy adjustable the pinnacle of double edge razor technology. Pick yours up before its gone!
This razor has gone through our complete Revamp restoration process- including polishing, mechanical adjustment, plating, lubricating and painting. Nothing is bent or broken. The razor head doors open and the TTO or twist to open mechanism works perfectly in seemless motions. Original Gillette Fatboy's had a maroon indicator, this Fatboy's RED indicator pops beautifully with the bright white shine of the Rhodium!
