My new (to me) bottom dial Fatboy has just arrived and I gave it a try this morning. I must say the weight of this thing is something - even heavier than the regular Fatboy or Toggle. Also,the extra size of the bottom dial and knob makes it easier to hold while shaving.


I put a new Personna Prep blade in and, using TOBS Eton College cream, went to work. It was very easy to use for the first time with a setting of 5. I'll experiment more with different settings but this first try was very successful.

Alas, no case but I'm eagerly searching for one of those elusive items. (hint hint)


Here's some eye candy for those who get off on that sort of thing.

Nice idea but I'll think I'll hold onto it for a while.  Any chance you have a spare bottom dial case sitting around Smile?

Where'd you find that? Looks terrific, and most liely shaves well like all the Gillettes.

Very nice - I've at various times since the early '60s had around a dozen or so of Fat Boys, still have several plus an Executive.  My favorite razor of them all.  Never expect to own a bottom dialer but nice to know a member has!

PS, I can't see the pictures either
