SKU: RN-22824-2

Description

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 and it has a satisfying 1/4 turn!

Factory Nickel is our Revamp finish most closely resembling original Gillette Nickel finish. Glass bead blasting acts to camoflauge and smooth out this texture from 60+ year past. Scratch and stain resistant with a beautiful shine.

    Restored Gillette FatBoy is Amazing!

    I've bought vintage razors off of Ebay.. sometimes it works out... sometimes it doesn't. I should have just bought a restored razor from RE and saved time and money. The Fat Boy I purchased from RE was like new and worked flawlessly... gave me an excellent shave. I also bought a Slim and couldn't be happier. I've added these vintage razors are in my rotation.

    Perfect Revamp of 1959 Gillette Fatboy

    I ordered this razor to shave with and use a lot. I have dozens of razors, and many premium modern razors. I have heard so many good things about these vintage Gillette razors that I wanted to own a fatboy adjustable to shave with. I made the right decision buying this from razor emporium. I was stunned how gorgeous this razor is, and it shaves as good as it looks. You are definitely getting what you pay for with the revamps. Razor Emporium does the highest quality of work, it's remarkable really. This was my first razor purchase with razor emporium, and I have now purchased several more revamped razors from them. Keep up the great work Razor Emporium team, your services are really appreciated. I will be doing much more business with you ! I also appreciate your customer service, fantastic team !
