Parker Shavette Barber Razor SRX - Heavy Weight Stainless
Item No: PR801
The Parker SRX heavy-duty straight razor is designed for the professional barber & is sure to be a wet shaving enthusiast favorite.
The unique "clip to close" mechanism on this razor keeps the razor blade securely in place and perfectly aligned. Unlike most shavettes, the Parker SRX razor has a heavyweight stainless steel blade arm in addition to a stainless steel handle - not lower quality aluminum.
This razor 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 you have previously snapped in half (leave the blade in the wrapping while you do this - it's safer!).
Parker Razors are extensively engineered & tested to provide a superior shave. An excellent value.
- Stainless Steel All Metal
- 21cm long when fully opened
Note: This will take Saloon single edge Razor Blades or standard DE razor blades (Simply snap a double edge blade in half).
Parker are well known for manufacturing double edge razors since 1973 and have used their shaving expertise to create this affordable yet stylish shavette.
It is a close relative to the 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!
Seems to be constructed quite well and is very sturdy. The finish around the edges leaves something to be desired but this is a fault of appearance not function.
