The battle of the adjustable's! Representing the USA we have the Gillette Fatboy E1, on the other corner, representing Europe (myself from Portugal =P), the french Gibbs réglable! Rules: 3 rounds, 3 days beard (I have a light beard), proraso pre shave, prosaso soap and proraso (omega) boar brush. Some photos of the contendors: I tried to be as original as I could so gibbs blades (NOS) and some Gillette blades (NOS) from the 70-80's I believe. Im trying to be impartial. The fatboy is one of my daily shavers, I know it well so 1st pass I like in 4, 2nd pass I like in 6. This was my first time with gibbs, so I used the N setting which I believe was the one they recomended. Let the battle of the heavy weights begin!! What two different shavers we have here. The gibbs is head heavy, very close shave and a big blade exposure. Again, first time with the gibbs, I was very cautious. 1st round: fatboy wins! Much softer and similar effectiveness. The gibbs made me feel the blade too much and I dont think it was a better shave. I know that some persons like to feel the blade, thats not my case, but it feels like a shavette. 2nd Round: fatboy in 6. Now shaving against the grain, both did a good job, no burns, soft shave. But again the fatboy wins. 3rd round: well lets get the fatboy in 9! In this round Im out of my confort zone in the fatboy. Again I feel more the gibbs blade but its more confortable than the fatboy. The fatboy gave me a couple of nicks, the gibbs none. Its a final BBS shave but the 3rd round goes to Gibbs! Some Proraso White balm to finish and Im done! After 1h I still feel some irritation from the fatboy in 9, the gibbs side is great. I have mixed feelings. The fatboy is my home, the french Gibbs was a weekend away. It was nice, fun, but feels good to come home. But there is no doubt that the gibbs is a great shaver, and I believe many of you will love the feel. I also have to say that I used 2 vintage blades to make this original, but every razor feels different with a different blade. I want to try the gibbs with some astra platinum and see how it feels. Thanks!!!
