No Gillette shave for me this weekend but I did some tinkering. Came up with a Frankenrazor using a Gillette Old top cap and Fatip Gentile base plate. It looks very promising. Fatip cap is in the bin anyway. We shall see. Fallette? Gellettip?

It's a pretty common swap, should work out fine for you. Lotta guys do it as it expands the range of handles to use with the Fatips.
