    Original. Handle is cracked, but inserted with a rod and marine epoxy. Also have the blade bank and case...both in excellent condition.

    I have a mint cased 59 Fatboy and a 60 that is in rotation that a buddy down Texas way got for me. I enjoy the Fatboy shaves very much and though I have several Slims/Aristocrats and Super Adjustables I travel with the 60 regularly.

    Up for tomorrow the millennial special, a 1981 Black Beauty. With this I will have shaved through all the Gillette adjustables I own on the 9 setting.

    Today was reserved for the 60 Fatboy which I haven’t reached for in awhile. Loaded up a no name brand blade that was purchased in Portugal while the family was on vacation. While not the sharpest of blades they were smooth. 3 passes and a DFS/BBS finish. Now I could have done another buffing pass but I was happy with the result. Happy Monday!

    I have been told this is a rocket, I have not figured out for sure if it is or not. No date code either. So, y'all tell me. IMG_20190128_094448_643.jpg

    I think "we all" might have a better idea of it if you tell us what's stamped on it. Or give us better photos. :)
