Brush: DeLuxe 24mm

Sunday morning shave with the Gillette Fatboy and Sunday Morning. I didn't see Sunday Morning listed on Erica's Etsy page so if you didn't get some, you really missed out on a lovely scented soap. This shave was my first with a Gillette Fatboy. I started my shave on a setting of 7 (WTG) then 6 (XTG) then 5 (ATG). On the setting 7 I could diffidently feel the blade on my check but by the time I got to setting 5 on the against the pass, the blade feel was somewhat less. So my first time use of the Fatboy and choice of settings worked well for me. This Fatboy could have fallen into a budget shave because I only paid $22 for it. It has an issue with the knob on the bottom of the handle in that it isn't perfectly round so when you turn the knob it will get hard to turn in spots. Outside of the knob issue ... the razor performed as expected. With this being my first time using a Fatboy E2 ... I can see why here are so many fans of this razor. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
