I finally have some time to introduce myself after joining TSN while searching for a Fatboy. I have been wetshaving for almost 2 years now and it has become quite the hobby...maybe I should say obsession. So far I have suffered (I say that lightly) from razor, soap, and aftershave acquisition disorder. Not to say I haven't tried all kinds of blades and most types of brushes.

I have recently gone into "thinning the den" mode and believe I now have a good variety of products that I truly enjoy. Which brings me to my latest acquisition, the G2 Fatboy I received yesterday. I had tried many varieties of Gillette TTO's (slim, redtip, superspeed) and decided they didn't work for me as well as a 3 piece razor. I didn't feel I could get as close of a shave with them and had a harder time trimming around my goatee. I had the chance to try a Fatboy this week and loved everything about it. Size and weight made it very easy to maneuver and I even tried it with a Feather on 9 with good results. I checked the local antique store in hopes I would find a steal but ended up resorting to the 'bay. After watching for a few days and waiting for the right opportunity, I moved on one that appeared to be in good shape. I got it right under what I was wanting to pay for it and have to say the pictures were just bad enough to keep the bidding lower. It is in excellent condition, very shiny and black paint is all there. The signifigance of it being a G2 (1961) is that it is my fathers birth year. Even though it wasn't his and he probably won't ever use it(he prefers an electric), it will still be something nice to pass on when the time comes.

Enough talk about shaving for now, here's a little bit about myself. I live in Mount Vernon, OH with my wife of 4 years and daughter who recently turned 2. I work in IT on a helpdesk for a regional bank and have been here almost 3 years now. I enjoy building computers and playing pc games in what very little spare time I have. My wife and I enjoy traveling and are currently planning a southern caribbean cruise for our 5 year anniversary.
