Well, now I know what a man felt like when he received his brand new razor in 1961! This razor is in pristine condition and I doubt that it has been used before. Definitely one for the guy who wants nothing but the best he can lay his hands on. The case is in beautiful condition, and we have added a pack of vintage blades to complement the razor and case, the latter also being in 'new old stock' condition.
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, maneuverability and 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.
