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. This razor was originally in Nickel, but we love the look of the new 24K Gold Revamp. Gold is definitely not the choice for a daily shaver, but a great option for a special Sunday shave! 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.
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 black indicator is super elegant and a statement!
