    This is the best shaver I have ever used. You can turn it up to be as aggressive as you need or turn it down to be mild. The weight of the razor does the work. Best piece of American shaving equipment ever made!

    The Cadillac of razors!

    got one new in 1960 when i graduated from jr high. Used till about 10 years ago it finally fell apart. Bought a merkur 51c that looks like a garden tool in comparison. looking for a new fatboy if possible. Quality for price will be worth it. Will last till i die.
