Lovely indeed Richard - congrats!! I find it the smoothest of all OC’s, on par with a 1st gen Aristocrat. Absolutely perfect. And the head design is unbeaten, the way the blade is held in place is pure engineering elegance!
Euros, I refrain from importing since last October as shipping costs are pretty high anyway and I don’t want to add import taxes and duties as well. Brexit has cut off the UK route as well...Too bad. 2 Slims is always better than 1.
Is that 46 USD or EUR for the Fatboy?
Very nice! I am often amazed at the low prices asked in some US stores. It is as if the sellers have no idea of the value of their goods and have not thought of looking online at recent sale prices, or even selling online themselves. I wonder how they stay in business. Here in the UK I have never once seen a vintage razor, other than straights or Rolls razors, in an antique shop, they all sell online; even the charity shops, or thrift stores, sell on the bay. There is literally nothing - not that I am jealous or anythingI stumbled across this today.

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and found a nice complete Red and Black Special set inside.

It has no serial number and it has the "Reissue Pat." on the base which is different than what I remember seeing. View attachment 1251447
