Bozo has likewise been wet with anticipation. He even bought some lingerie.

I have joined the club. My EJ DE89 showed up in the post today. Looking forward to using it. It is a great looking razor.

I found feathers a bit harsh for my EJ89

I usually find that the milder the razor, the milder the blade is better suited to it

so my fatboy excels with a feather on its more aggressive settings

the EJ89 is great with a trig or Astra

my superspeed and techs are much better with Derbys


and so on

I know the Fatboy is not the most aggressive razor around, but I've never got on with more aggressive razors than it

Just received my Fat Boy in the mail. It's in pretty good shape with no rust and only soap scum. I can't wait to get it cleaned up and start trying it out.

I had been wanting to get an old school razor for a while. I mentioned it to my grandmother (who is 89 years old) and she said, "Hey! I still have your grandfathers old razor." They had kept them over the years and never thrown them away. She gave me two of them. I love using them, and it means a lot to me because they were my grandfathers -- who passed away a few years ago. I use the Wilkinson Sword blades in them. Talk about a good shave!
