This is a Gillette Fat Boy safety razor that has been exceptionally well stored and taken care of. It is a great looking razor in perfect defect and blemish free condition. It bears the date code of F-1, which indicates it was made during the 1st quarter of 1960. Aesthetically and mechanically this razor is in like new condition. The butterfly doors open and close smooth and effortlessl by turning the TTO (twist to open) handle, which also performs the last quarter turn to lock doors into the closed position exactly as intended. Perfect TTO operation with no "lazy doors" in the opened position. The 1-9 adjustment dial works perfectly with audible clicks with the numbers retaining their original black paint, which attests to little or no previous usage. Included with this razor is an vintage origina,l metal dispenser, of 15 Gillette Super Stainless blades.
NOTE: Back in the day these vintage safety razors were made extremely well and to last. They provide a very economical alternative shaving method compared to the cost of present day safety razors and the shave quality doesn't show any inferiority. The blades are readily available as can be attested by the several companies that today, still make just the blades that are being manufactured by several companies, and sold in abundance on the internet and in various stores. This razor is in super fine condition and will make a great lifetime shaving companion.
