I always hear that people who like shorter heavy razors like the Fatboy so I thought I would show another less mentioned option. For those who haven't seen one the 1953 President, next a Fatboy. The Fatboy weighs in at 80 grams ( a little heavier than a normal Fatboy due to Rhodium replate) and the President is 65 grams. Both razors are hefty feeling and provide a great shave. Notice the handle on the Pres is quite a bit shorter. The head is Nickel and the handle is Rhodium. If you ever run across one I highly recommend picking it up.

Received a cased President as a gift from my Inlaws,feels real nice in my hand but I'm not a TTO kind of guy and have yet to enjoy the shave.Might have to give it a try again sometime soon.

Yes, the President looks nice with the Rhodium plating and feels nice in the hand and shaves well.

There is something to be said about the beauty of the British Aristocrats.....IMO the are the pinnacle of Gillette's TTO's......being the Open Comb Evangelist I am, I'm a HUGE fan of the #14.....But all off them...gorgeous....

The President is a gorgeous razor.... didn't realize it was shorter than the Fatboy....
