    Not worth the postage, so enjoy your dwindling stock.
    I'll put em on my shopping list considering the good reviews!

    My B400 does not have interchangable knots. No worries the Omega is perfect for it. They are cheap enough for you to replace often!!

    Bolzanos are a seriously nice blade, smooth and sharp.

    I'm not quite ready to replace my favorite Feathers and GSBs with them but they're right up there.

    This set up is working really well for me. I increased the setting from 5 to 7 for the last few shaves. There's obviously more blade feel, but the shaves continue to be very close and comfortable. I skipped yesterday, so today's shave consisted of a two-passer on two days of growth. The blade shows no signs of dulling on the 4th shave. I will change it out anyway for tomorrow's shave.

    My Bride and I are going to a Bible study weekend group class dinner tonight. A friend is showing off his smoker skills, and we're happy to oblige him! I hope you all have a great weekend.

    I'd like to than you @stuartganis for keeping this thread alive! During the month of August the 30 Day Crew theme is Adjustables. I've used my Fat Boy several time but neglected posting my photos here.

    Gillette Fatboy has become my favorite Adjustable. My first razor is the Gillette Slim that I bought in 1962. As time went by I got thr Super Adj. another great razor. Had a Merkur Progress but liked the Gillette Adj. better due to better grip and TTO. Recently bought the Parker Variant, great razor but after my brother sent me our fathers Fatboy I prefer the Fatboy

    Very cool - an heirloom razor is highly desirable, especially one as good as a #195. When my father became aware of my use of DE razors he passed a couple my way. I tried to like Schick Kronas but find them frustratingly mild compared to my more aggressive favorites.
