I just got in my new Fatip Piccolo razor yesterday. I am quite excited about this razor. The Piccolo has that classic look to it. Even the plating is very classic. I think razors should be nickel plated not chrome. Nickel has a more warm look to it. This is one beautiful razor. I also have a gold Grande which looks nice but you can't beat the look of nickel. This one has perfect alignment. It is without a doubt my favorite DE razor. And I have tried many different ones, believe me.

One of my favorites and I had it along with me one night as I had just received it in the post. My grandfather was taking my cousin and I out for dinner and I was in the car looking at my new razor. My grandfather looked over and said " wow that's a nice razor , where did you get this? " I told him the were manufactured in Italy , and our heritage is from that part of the world. I agree it's a beautiful razor with classic elegance. Smooth clean shaver and at a nice price point. Thanks for sharing and I also enjoy tabac and silver blues , awesome performers.

I think the nickel looks better than chrome and has a lot more class also. IMO

Great looking razor! Sounds like you enjoy the Piccolo over the grande in the quality of shave. What are you reasons. I only ask because my interest in purchasing one of my own.

I like them both to tell the truth. In fact I think I prefer the Grande just slightly over the Piccolo. It's my favorite DE razor for sure.

What is the difference? Aggressiveness, weight/ balance or build?

The main difference between the Piccolo and the Grande is the handle. They share the same head. The Grande handle is larger but hollow. The Piccolo handle is smaller but solid. Here is a picture of the Grande.
