The production of the razor today known as FATIP began in Milan in the 1950's. Due to financial problems, the original manufacturer was bought out by an artisan scissor manufacturer. They took over the machinery and materials and continued the production for a few years then suspended it. It was only in the 1980's, with innovative equipment and processes, that manufacturing started again and the FATIP brand was re-launched from the original designs. The quality & performance of the product was greatly improved, while maintaining the distinctive characteristics of the razor. Today Fatip is renowned and loved the world over for its style, handling and precision which combine with ease of use and inherent safety. It has been stated that Fatip is an excellent example of the Made in Italy brand and an ambassador of the Art of Shaving throughout the world.
