I scored a K-2 fatboy, Slim adj (not sure of date code yet) and a Fat handle Tech. Ill get some pics this week after i get them cleaned up. They are all in good condition (slight signs of wear but no brassing or plate loss) not show pieces by any means, but should be great shavers nonetheless.
Had to go out to a clients and was playing with Google maps.
"Accidently" put the word Antiques in the search and mysteriously found a list of Antique Shops on the way to clients.
Rather than drop into all of them I figured I'd give them a call.........
"Nope ", "Haven't got any", "Haven't seen any for years" were the standard replies until.....
"You mean something like a Gillette Adjustable ????? "...Score maybe, who knows it could be a pile of junk. I know it's got a case though............. Most of you should be able to guess what this razor might be before I got there............
Off we go, stop off ....hopes aren't high , get in there.....wooohooo:
To me it looks like its basically never been used. Numbers are completely black and there's not a trace of muck on it.
Manage to haggle 33% off the price and it's mine.... all mine...... Not as good a bargain as some of the razors I've found but still a good price for a Near Mint FB with case
Blackdog this is a Fatboy.
Main differences to look for ...case, size of the TTO Knob at the bottom ( shorter and stouter ) , vertical pattern on 1-9 adjuster . But don't worry slims are still a good razor.
