A couple of weeks ago I thought I saw a post about someone getting a protoype of a straight bar razor from fatip.  I cannot remember who it was, but was interested in asking more questions?  A fatip piccolo is my daily driver and would love to see their take on an SB.

This might be interesting, but it, probably, would be just as aggressive which is why I don't use the Fatip.
Good luck acquiring it. Shy

I like the aggressiveness of the fatip.  I wish I could find something as aggressive but smoother but...for me, milder razors just take 5 to 6 passes to produce what I can get in 2 plus spot touches with a fatip.

I ordered one last week and waiting for its arrival. I'm looking forward to it. I got mine from IB and I believe it is similar to the RR Baby Smooth razor and Merkur Bakelite 45.

They are called the Fatip Testina Gentile and I have the gold one; I really enjoy my Fatip Grande so very much wanted to pick one up. Haven't used it yet [No Shave November] but quality of finish is on par with the Grande. I don't expect it to be as aggressive as the Grande as the name translates to "Gentle Head" but we will see. Another couple of weeks and will take it for a test run and follow up.

Exactly Smile On another note, I will give the RAZOR a trial shortly and will report the results.

I ordered a chrome plated FTG on Tuesday.  With the holiday, as well as IB being backed, it looks like I'll be getting it on Tuesday.  I'll report back here Tuesday at 6:30 pm with my thoughts.  I also picked up an IB Mentor razor primarily for the handle.  Looking forward to trying that out also.

i'd be curious to find out if the IB mentor handle fits on the FaTip head. Been wanting to try a different handle for my FaTip Grande. Granted, the thread on the Gentille may be a bit different.
