    Gillette Fatboy

    Best de safety razor I’ve ever owned. I’ve owned a Jagger and an adjustable Merkur, which are both amazing razors, but this is by far the best. The top that opens with the twist at the bottom of the handle makes it very easy and satisfying to replace blades. This refurbished factory nickel model seems brand new - I can’t tell in the slightest that it was made 60 years ago. The BEST shave I’ve ever had. Worth every penny!

    Worth every penny - great job

    I ordered the Fatboy from Scotland, despite having closer sources because of the influence and passion of Matt’s videos and RE’s company ethos towards products that are priced for a reason. Received my F4 Fatboy today and was stunned when I saw how new it looked. This razor is 62 years old and it looks as if it was recently made. I shaved with it straight away and being a head shaver, I started on 1 but dialled up to 5 until I got the closeness and comfort I need. By contrast, my Slim is a 9. My first impressions were that it’s no surprise that the Fatboy is so revered by the wet shaving community, it’s perfect. The heft, the shave, the build… just total quality. The razor functions exceptionally well, the only thing I would improve is the dial on mine isn’t quite there compared to my L4 Slim which has a satisfying click through the dial and yes, I have slackened it first ;) Apart from that, it’s a stunning razor that has already jumped to top spot in my rotation, which includes the Rex Ambassador, Merkur Progress, Rockwell T2 and Henson AL13 Medium. Great job, Matt and the team.

    As good as new.

    I just received my MTO model 195. I have not had a chance to shave with it but it really looks extremely close to a new razor. The new planting is near flawless and the mechanicals work smooth and precise. Worth every penny!

    Incredible!!

    See my thorough review of my M2O Slim Adjustable. My experience with the Fatboy is identical Only problem (and the reason for 4 starts) is that in my invoice Razor Emporium wrote the full list price, while I bought the razor on sale, so I had to pay more custom taxes than expected. Nothing to do with the razor, and I hope my local government will use my hard-earned money well, but paying extra taxes does not bring joy to anyone hehe
