Another very well looked after slim, this razor is in great shape, the box has a crack at the bottom and the one hinge is broken off the lid, but it still displays beautifully and the defects are not easy to spot when on display. The red tray was part of a set called the 'Sun op set' and had some cologne, aftershave and a few blades in it, all made by Gilette, we have chucked in a few 'thin blades' to sweeten the pot on this purchase.
The Gillette Slim adjustable is the younger, sleeker, slightly taller boet of the Fatboy, it is pretty much the same razor, with the Fatboy being a bit more popular, possibly as they are a bit scarcer, they also introduced adjustability to the Gillette brand, making it a 'milestone' razor. The shave quality is much the same, with the Fatboy offering a bulky look, and is heavier in hand, while the slim brings a slimmer appearance, a bit more mobility, improved maneuverability and a lighter weight to the party. The head on the slim looks te be a tad flatter also. If in two minds about which one will favour your face do the logical thing and get one of each! These razors will remain popular and in demand for many years to come.
The razor has 9 settings that clicks into position as you twist the dail below the head. The razor has a butterfly mechanism that opened when the knob at the bottom end of the razor is turned. It stands 90 mm high and weighs 71 grams.
