So just as an update
I was away for the weekend and when I returned home the fatboy was there with a couple of blades from TommyP (y)

It is in remarkably good condition for a razor that has done the rounds since 2011

I will shave with it over the next few weeks and post my thoughts

Cheers folks
It’s a cracking razor. Start saving now!

Have fun with the fatboy. I tried to get it shining for you. It's funny to me to read my old post about not going above 6. I bought a slim off the back of trying the fatboy and it's the razor I most use along with a Gillette NEW. Lately I've actually been using it on 9 for all 3 passes. I never thought I would, but with considered technique it shaves great on 9 and causes less irritation. I know this sounds backwards and I didn't believe it at first, but it's true. I favor Gillette Platinum or 7 O'clock blades lately but I recently loaded up a Feather. Slim@9 + Feather really make you really aware of not using pressure whereas the Gillette blades are more forgiving of sloppy technique.

The Fatboy is back with me.
It will not go anywhere until we find someone who wants to take over the pass around.
Anyone? It's not difficult.
