    ...and I forgot about Fat Boy Friday. I'm sure to have another close encounter with my favorite Gillette soon. The Red handled Flare Tip distracted me!

    Doh! I might should have named this thread GAF for Gillette Adjustable Friday. I decided to shave with a Black Beauty today before I send it off to one of my sons. That puts me off step for my next shave which won't be until Saturday unless I push my 36-48 hour schedule.

    Let’s do it! Can we change the title to GAF?

    Not a Fat Boy, technically, but I broke out the '58 Executive.

    I wouldn't replate a razor unless it was totally a beater. That being said my Fat Handle Tech could use the Delta Echo treatment.

    Herm, if it walks like a Fat Boy, and talks like a Fat Boy...
    A golden wash over nickel plating on top of an all brass heart of #195 is certainly welcome!

    I've got a '46-'47 Aristocrat that's had the gold rubbed off the cap by lots of loving. It'll be my first choice to send to the replaters. The clear coat/thin gold wash that Gillette used wasn't meant to last 70 years. I've heard modern replates are substantially thicker.

    Send it to Matt at Razor Emporium and he will do any adjustments it needs and then he will have it replated for you.

    I know this is about adjustables, but after @RyX 's comment, I just had to post this. This is my 46-47 I had replated by Sport Shaving. I apologize ahead of time.

    No need to apologize Jim. It's a beautiful razor! Like most threads there will be Topic Drift. Maybe not so quickly as this thread has slipped off the rails.

    Anyone got a photo of a Schick Type M? :eatdrink047:

    How would you compare it's shave to an adjustable Gillette?
