A must have for todays wet-shaver: the Fatboy. Between the heft, adjustability and cool factor, it doesn't get more classic than this. Nothing bent or broken- great mechanical condition. This would be an ideal starter razor for someone new to wet-shaving due to the comfortable and close shaves provided. It has an even blade gap, and has been inspected to ensure its high quality operation.
Adjustable dial on this razor gives you the control over how close/aggressive your shave is numerically 1-9. Dial settings of 1 provide a mild shave, up to 9 would give the most close and aggressive shave.
Doors open and close like it was made yesterday, and are bright and shiny in fresh Nickel plating. This plating will stand up to the test of time, as this razor already has since the 1950's! This razor has gone through our full Revamp service process- including plating, buffing, mechanical adjustment, ultra-sonic cleaning, and lubrication.
