Can I please be removed from the list. Fortune has shined on me from elsewhere.

Thank you
Enjoy your fortune.

I gave the Fatboy a try this morning and I had a nice and relaxing shave. For some reason I thought it would be bigger, heavier, bulkier, but no it was just right! I feared it is an aggressive razor so I started on setting 1 but worked my way up to 4. On the first 3 settings I didn't even feel the blade. Nice and smooth! I did feel a bit of alum sting though, but nothing too serious.
I used SV Felce Aromatica and a Polsilver blade.
Thanks again @riverrun for the opportunity!

As the next stop is in Germany I'm taking the liberty to schedule another German stop for the Fatboy.
The guy is a well known member of one of the German Forums

Fourth shave this morning with the Fatboy:
Loaded a Personna blade from a dispenser the way the razor was designed to :)
I think the Rockwell is a bit smoother than the Fatboy for my skin. I avoided shaving ATG as it can be quite aggressive and I had a few weepers.
It is a very nice piece of engineering and I am very happy that I had the chance to try it. I will keep it for two more shaves and then mail it to Pepperpot.

Like you, the Rockwell is a far better shave but are you allowing for adjusting it up? My next with the fat boy will be a 9 and that is because I think it is on a par then with a 3/4 on the Rockwell. Good also to compare with like blades.
 
The fatboy arrived today in Germany.
Enjoy.
The other guy in Germany just informed me that he has bought a Fatboy.

First shave with the fatboy, a Gillette Silver Blue blade and 36h worth of stubble. Started on setting 2, quickly dialed up to setting 4. The shave was okay as I need to figure out the best angle to use it.
