Parker are well known for manufacturing double edge razors since 1973.
The Parker 99R is a really well finished razor with some heft about it. I wanted to like it more. The butterfly mechanism is great making it easy to change blades. It's a big razor and heavy. It's also very agressive. This is my 4th DE razor and although I really want to love it, I'm having a few challenges with the aggressiveness of it. Even with really mild blades like Sharks it requires a careful approach and a lot of care. It's responsible for more blood loss than any other razor I have used. In saying that, I haven't given up on it just yet, I really like the look, finish and weight of it. I hope we can get alone with a bit more time and practice.
Best shaver I have had for a long time 10 out of 10.
