    Impressive!

    A quick question... I notice that on your page you have the patent diagrams for the bottom-dial and toggle. Would you happen to know the patent # for the Slim? There was an eBay seller who used to have the diagram for the Slim but I haven't seen it in a while.

    My math isn't terribly great, but isn't that four razors?

    Ha ha... There must be a new type of adjustable razor out there I haven't seen yet. A Super Adustable that is both long and short (telescoping). Just kidding... ;)

    I guess I feel about adjustables the same as I do about fancy car seats with 100 different adjustments. Never satisfied, always messing around with settings. I sold mine off, I didn't think they served me any better than other razors in the den that gave my tiny brain less to think about. Quite impressive collection.

    Impressive collection Glenn and great website. I had never heard about the bottom dial fatboy with the dial painted black before.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I thought I was doing quite well with 4 Fatboys and 1 SA-109 in my collection. Looks like I still have 16 variants to find somewhere...

    In my experience, I usually don't have to think about it. If I have longer stubble, I use a higher setting. If I can afford to go lower, then I usually do. Lower settings are also perfect for rare occasions when I need a closer shave and I go against the grain in some areas. I don't think that I can go back to a non-adjustable anymore.
