    Yes, it’s a thing today. Thanks for the reminder. I’m going to use an adjustable later.

    So, yesterday I placed my D1 Red Dot Fatboy in a box to begin it's replating journey. The plan is to redo it in factory nickle....however, the idea of black rhodium (white numbers...or silver) is intriguing. I know, the shaving gods are displeased with the very thought.

    I've got gold, rhodium, and nickle Gillette adjustable replates already. A D3 Fatboy in white rhodium and 2 toggles in original gold and nickle.

    The D1 Red Dot Fatboy is somewhat rare. The purist in me says nickle. The oddball in me says black rhodium. Resale value, to me, is unimportant.

    Thoughts?

    It is your razor so you must do what your heart says.... but since you asked, I would go with the nickel... keep it as original as possible.

    I'll go Devil's Advocate; A Red Dot is already a Rare Beast. Please yourself. One day someone else will treasure it. They can have the plating stripped and go back Original Style should they choose.

    That is a gorgeous Fatboy, James. I'm curious what year / quarter it is?
