    I seem to be using this D4 Fat Boy almost exclusively. It's a great razor...

    Used my birth quarter razor this morning: Gillette Slim Adjustable H3 on setting 7 with a Gillette Silver Blue blade. I always get a nice close irritation free shave from this razor. Brush was a Connaught Omega faux jade boar. Soap was Mystic Water Adirondack Jack. Splash was Aqua Velva Musk. Enjoying my day of faceturbating.

    I thought so, too. In consideration and thanks for keeping the post coming while I played SE & OC with the 30 Day Crew I didn't argue. It was an adjustable Gillette!

    Yesterday’s shave was with a wild find Toggle. A P-74 set at #7 delivered a outstanding shave in two passes.

    Good looking vintage Gillette you found there! Did you get it for less than ebay prices?

    I don't visit my local shops as much as I used to. Having some what settled down on my ADs except for soaps and AS. I'll still keep looking in the wild but I don't snatch up every razor I see any more. My list of vintage gotta haves has significantly shortened and focused to the point they are rare; A Schick Type F, Cooper Monobuilt, and a Toggle in serviceable condition. I still buy Gillette Adjustables if they seem like a clean up would restore them to use. Good trade fodder!

    Thank you. Yes, it was priced at flea market prices, very flea market pricing. Actually all the hardware in the pictures came from dirt malls. The R-400 years ago that I reknotted and the P-74 still has its price sticker. This is my third wild Toggle. First one many years ago was a cased NOS and the second was a user grade I gave to my father. My best score is a 1-9 Bottom Dial that I use once a year around Christmas or New Years. I have two white whales, a nickel Toggle in its case and a FB Red Dot, case or no case, one day. I tell everyone, never stop looking, never give up, you don’t know what you are going to find.

    Positive attitude!

    Should I decide to go back to SR and want to talk stones, or really get the itch for a Toggle I'll send a PM. Can't say I've spotted your white whales. I'd be Very happy with a nickle T. Red dot Fat Boys are only slightly less rare than bottom dials.

    I have a few friends of mine that are serious pickers in the SW area. They all have pictures with a high bounty on the Red Dot. One day—— maybe

    I understand the desire for Toggles and Bottom Dials. They are different in significant visual ways, though they may shave in a similar fashion. Being happy with a well cared for E-4, I haven't looked into Red Dot versions. Is it just the low production numbers?
