The Fatboy's heavier and has a little shorter and thicker handle which both contribute to it's charm in their own ways, but the main thing is the more rounded head design. Two different profiles with a Slim and Fatboy head.......that's mainly why they perform in different ways. The only other razors I know of with that head is the Toggle and the Executive (late 1950s version).
Most people will prefer one head design over the other........gotta try em both and see which ones fits better.
I can quit at any time that I decide to. Unfortunately, I have NO control over when (if ever) that decision might occur.
