Hi guys. :thumbup:
Which is the heaviest of the old beautifull razors before 1960? Do any of you know?
Kind regards Lars Jensen :001_smile

Among Gillettes, the Big Fellow.... Otherwise Barbasol is pretty hefty itself

Although not the heaviest, but the Gem Micromatic is pretty heavy compared to most DE razors. Awesome shaver to :thumbup:

As Gillettes go, the heaviest razor before 1960 was the 1958 red dot fatboy.
Right on the 1960 date is the heavier F4 toggle.

I vote for the Stahly Live Blade, which was produced after WW2 and into the 1960s. I don't know how much it weighs, but I put mine on the floor scales and it moved. It's the one in the top middle; compare it to the Super Speed and Schick and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Another vote for the Stahly.

I imagine a Gillette Bulldog and Gillette Toggle is in there somewhere.

Toggle.......................... 87.8 gms
New Delixe Big Fellow...... 86.5 gms
195 Bottom Dial ............. 85 gms (Taken from the WIKI. I don't have one.
New Improved Big fellow . 83.6 gms
Fat Boy ......................... 82.2 gms
Old Type Bulldog ............. 65 gms
New Long Tooth fat handle 54 gms
Old Type Double Ring ....... 52 gms

Got to be the Stahly. Shaving with that thing is like doing a hammer toss. Much heavier than my Big Boy, Big Fellow, Toggle, Fat Boy and Barbasol - maybe as much as all of them combined...

I did not list the Stahly as I consider it in a class of it's own, more like a hybrid between a DE and a wind-up electric.
