This Parker barber razor is a close relative to a straight razor, with the difference being that the blades can be changed - just like a safety razor. This means you don't have to worry about stropping and sharpening yet enjoy the closeness of a straight razor shave!
It is an ideal introduction to the traditional art of open razor shaving, as the technique is similar but without the need for razor honing and sharpening skills. Simply discard the blade after 2 or 3 uses and insert a fresh one. Change Blade by lifting the hinged cover opening the holder and carefully insert one half of the blade. The unique “clip to close” mechanism on this razor keeps the razor blade securely in place and perfectly aligned.
Unlike most replaceable blade barber razors, this Parker SRP razor has a heavyweight stainless steel blade arm with elegant black finish, in addition to a finished wood handle and not lower quality aluminum. Just pick your favorite double edge blade, snap it in half, and insert it into the razor. It’s that simple! If you prefer, already pre-cut blades (Saloon blades) are also available.
Handle Material: Contoured Pine Wood
Razor Arm: Stainless Steel with premium black finish
Length: 15cm (21cm fully open)
Note: This will take Saloon single edge Razor Blades or standard DE razor blades (simply snap a double edge blade in half).
