You like vintage razors, but you are looking for something that is unique, it must work perfectly and also look the part without it being gunky or flaky. In steps vamped razors; we clean, buff and chemically treat these razors in various ways to give them each a very distinct personality, its like vintage on steroids. 

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 dial 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.

This razor shaves very well, we have put in extra effort to give the safety bar nice and  smooth finish to improve glide and remove the nicks and dents thet were added over time with regular use, if it kicks your current Slim's ass, we are to blame, not your currently owned razor!
