    Default Fat Handle Tech-Had to Have One

    I had been casually looking for a Gillette Fat Handle Tech with the trianagular slots. I found one last week and just finished my 4th shave with it using a Gillette Silver Blue blade. It shaves great and does indeed shave a bit closer than my Gillette Ball End Tech.

    It also just "feels good" in my hand and has great balance.

    Heh, I saw the first two images as one and marveled at the giant, double size razor.
    Very nice.

    Here is the current line up. Mine is fairly small compared to many.

    I have found most of them on the B/S/T forums on the different boards and one on the bay, one on Etsy.

    Patience is the key...........

    I only have a couple - I am still loving on my straights for now, but I do love a DE shave now and again. The R41 calls my name, but a fat handle looks like a beautiful thing .

    Lots of them on ebay. If you want some really nice vintage DE's, Above The Tie replates old DE's. He posts them on the website, and the stock always changes. They're a bit expensive, but first rate. They also have restored SR's.

    My FH Tech is back in the rotation currently. I just finished my 4th great shave with it using a Gillette 7 O'Clock Green SS.

    It is also my designated travel razor.

    Good show, Lince. The Fat Handle Tech is a good razor, although I found it a wee bit too mild for me, and yours appears in good shape.

    Picked up an identical twin to your tech a while back. Cleaned an polished it up like a new nickel. Shaved with it an yes it was a bit mild but still a good shaver. An very cool. So for now it stays in the rack secure an in a year or so when my son is ready to shave I plan to give it to him. Believe it will be a good starter razor. As far as your line up lince we have very similar taste. Almost your entire rotation mirrors mine. What is the white handled one on the left?
