Customer Reviews

Great razor, nice long handle and weight for my big hands.
bigboynj
The razor is well made, solid and has a nice heavy feel to it, where you feel the weight of the razor is doing the work.
UNC2010
It takes time, technique, and patience to get a good shave with a DE razor.

Hey...what can I say...for around 30 bucks w/ 10 Blades...I'd say I got a real good deal (if I don't say so myself)

Quality: Rating: 9
I can say that Parker has greatly increased its quality and durability in their Razors (especially the 2010 Models). I have been using this for many weeks now and have no complaints...I'm really pleased with this Razor. Although not Stainless Steel like my old Gillette Fat-Boy, I believe their 2010 design with brass over nickel plating could stand up with the best and more expensive Razors out there.

User Friendly: Rating: 9
I believe one the best aspect of this Razor is the weight...not yet a monster but at 3.2oz, it has more weight than my Parker 96R, which I like a lot and is a `plus' for ease of your shave.

Grip: Rating: 9.5
The grip on this Razor is very `sure' even when wet and the handle is big enough because this Razor has a 4in textured (machine-turned), handle to `fit' even the Wet-Shaver with `Bear Claws' for hands. The `Barber Pole' is what is the neatest thing about this Razor...it just feels soooo great in my hand.

Ease of Blade Replacement:Rating: 9
The ease of Blade replacement is `quick, easy and flawless' with the TTO doors opening with no slippage and/or `creakiness' and is `tight' when closed usinbg the knob on the end.

Aggressiveness: Rating: Rating: 10
This Razors performance in terms of aggressiveness is outstanding, depending on the `angle' you use. By far, the most aggressive Double-Edge Razor I have ever used (certainly more aggressive than my Parker 96R).

I finally got fed up with Gillette, and its ever more expensive shaving systems. I started shaving with a Gillette Safety Razor in 1968, and upgraded to every new razor they developed over the years. I "upgraded" to a Gillette Fusion Proglide with the 5 blades and the AA battery. Very fancy, shaved well, but replacement blades got too expensive. Even on Amazon, where I have bought my blades, the cartridges cost over $2.50 each.
That finally got me. I have seen some articles online extolling the joys of the safety razor, and decided to try it. I read the reviews on Amazon, chose this Parker 99R for its weight and longer handle. I've used it for about 3 weeks, and am very pleased. Since I learned to shave with a safety razor years ago, the adjustment was no big deal. The weight of the razor made shaving close very easy. I did knick myself a few times the first week, but after that, nothing but a great shave. I have found that I get a better shave using shaving soap and brush than using the gel I used in the past.
Now for the cost. No longer do I have to pay $2-3/blade. I can buy blades of the Shark double edged blades on Amazon for about $15, or 15 cents each. I change the blade weekly, could probably go longer, but at that price, why bother?
I am very happy that I made this change. I get a closer shave, and can buy 2 years worth of blades for the cost of an 8 pack of Gillette Fusion Proglide cartridges. Back to the future indeed.

The Parker 99R is one of the newer models produced in india by Parker and imported into the U.S by super safety razors. 3-4 years ago Parker safety razors were considered hit or miss with inconsistent blade gaps, questionable build quality and some inconsistently plated razors. Having owned hundreds of safety razors of both modern and vintage build (as well as some of the older parkers) I can say that the 99R is on par with its peers (Muhle, Merkur, ect) with some advantages.

Build Quality: The 99R is a pleasantly heavy razor, the head is similar in form and function to the gillette super speed models and that is a good design to emulate, the head is slightly more low profile than a superspeed and that's a good thing for getting under the nose. The plating is an even nickel coat with a nice shine to it. Here's where the parker has an edge on other modern razors- underneath the nickel plate is brass.

Safety razors tend to be made of either Zamak, Stainless Steel or Brass. Zamak is cheaper but once the plating that protects it is compromised it oxidizes rapidly and that oxidization eats through the body of the razor, ruining it. Brass when exposed forms a patina and that's that (which is why vintage brass razors are still around!) and Stainless steel is well- stainless. Even high end Muhle razors are made of Zamak, albeit with superfluously excellent plating. So, if buy it for life is a factor for you the Parker Safety razors actually have an advantage.

Mechanically the TTO action of the Parker 99R is sound and while the doors could be described as slightly thin they have lasted a year now with no issues.

This is my first double edge safety razor. I have very sensitive skin and therefore have always been in pursuit of the best shave for my type of skin. I started shaving 20+ years ago with disposable double blade razors. I later moved on to Mach 3, then 5 blade razors, and more recent expensive electric razors. I have also tried various shaving foams, creams, lotions, etc. I have never been satisfied with any shaving product. Until now! After much research, I decided to try a double edge safety razor. I bought this particular razor along with a Parker badger brush and a glycerin shaving soap. I must say, I am amazed at what I was able to achieve with my first try. I actually did not get any skin irritation! I am very happy that I was finally able to find something that actually works! Now, I am able to shave everyday without worries. If you dont buy this product, at least buy another double edge razor. I'm sure they will work better than anything else that's out there.
