I would like to provide some information about the Gillette Fatboy razor.
The Fatboy is in much demand and prices reflect that demand.
The price for a Fatboy in good shaving condition rises daily and it's very difficult to find.
It is important to know what a Fatboy looks like since there are other razors that look similar but are nowhere near the same in quality or value.
Gillette envisioned a razor with a replaceable blade.
In 1901, he teamed up with MIT graduate William Nickerson to form the American Safety Razor Company.
In three short years, the pair renamed the company Gillette and the first razor was sold to the public.
Collectors can date antique razors by serial number, though the system is not foolproof.
Serial numbers disappeared for a year between 19 before re-emerging.
Date codes debuted in 1931, but letter codes were recycled.
