Well I have been trying to pick up a Gillette Slim adj. for a few months now and have not been so lucky,
until one of my buddies was gracious enough to sell me one out of his own collection box and all.....So I am very
humbled to have friends such as this. This is an H2 date code, which I believe would be a 1962.....
So now I have a 1959 FatBoy, 1961 FatBoy and a 1962 Slim.....The only other one that I want to add
to my collection as far as adj. goes would be a Gillette Toggle.

Beautiful looking razor, Wallace.

Has it been replated or is it just the lighting playing tricks on me? It looks gold-plated. Smile

It is the way the light is hitting it, but it has not been replated.

lol, I've got a '62 slim as well!! They're beautiful pieces of hardware. I really enjoy using it knowing that it's 22 years older than I am. I want a fatboy to add to it.

Yea I have a hard time trying to pick between the slim and the FatBoys as to which one to use.

Do you find either of them shave better than the other?

Personally, I don't care for the Fat Boy. I much prefer the Slim and the Super Adjustable. The Fat Boy's head is too high and rounded for me. Ironically, the Merkur 45 Bakelite has a high rounded head but I get a better shave from it than I do the Fat Boy.

Congrats! My H1 is also one of my favourites. It's older than me, and was used by my father (who also happens to be older than me.)
