The Red Dot was one of several prototypes built by Gillette back in the 1950’s when they were developing the 195 adjustable razor (Fat Boy), has the adjustment dial on the bottom, it really doesn’t have that much in common with the production Fat Boy, it’s more like a Toggle w TTO knob. The Red Dot weighs 3.0 ounces, the production Fat Boy i’s 2.7 ounces and little longer handle. It also has a thicker, differently shaped blade tray and slightly longer guard bars. The adjustment is also different the entire blade tray moves on the Red Dot, whereas only the four bars move on the Fat Boy.Unlike the Fat Boy, the Red Dot does not have a lock down turn, it tightens down same way as Super Speed. Red Dot has a better build quality. The case for the Red Dot is also a little larger and more rounded than that of the Fat Boy case.
