Parker Shavette SRB Barber Razor Black
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!
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!).
Length is 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).
Bought this as a try out for my first straight shaving experience. Nicely constructed and easy to place new blades. I choose this as it look like it would be most comfortable to use given the profile of the blade handle. That's proved to be the case. Still getting used to the straight razor technique and care is required given the sharpness of the shavette blade. Very happy with this purchase.
The service was also very good easy to order and prompt delivery. The tracking alerts are also great.
