  1. Fascinating post and made me break out my Toggle for this morning’s shaving. I’ve looked for the 195 (is that the right model for the adjustable with the adjustment at the bottom of the handle?) but haven’t been lucky enough to find one.

    Do you know whether the adjustment method of the slim-handle adjustable follows the Fat Boy or the Toggle method?


  2. I think that the Slim and the Super Adjustable used the Fat Boy mechanism and vary the blade bend.

    I ‘d like to answer this last post. There is several place where you can find these old shavers.

    1. Online stores like ‘Above the tie’ who provide a variety of restored razors and shaving supplies.

    2. Ebay is a good place to look but most of them are dirty, you’ll have to clean before . There is a lot of tutorials about razor cleaning, all over the net. There is also seller who have shave ready razors, of course.

    3.Yardsales, trying to find razors in the wild is always interesting.

    4.Antique shop, not my cup of tea… Most likely they will try to sell you dirty razors for outrageous prices, claiming that the green corrosion is a valuable patina lolll Of course there is places where you’ll get them for decent prices.
