It feels very good in the hand, has a nice weight, and holds the blades very securely.
Christopher Carignan
When trying to open the blade/arm (or close it), the pins often catch on the inside lip of one side of the handle.

I know, stupid review title. But what wasn't stupid was my purchase of the Parker SR1 stainless steel razor. After viewing straight edge shaving videos on Youtube (which I recommend), I became fascinated with the thought of trying it myself. When I saw the prices for disposable blades for the straight edge, I saw $ signs.

I think it really has become criminal what companies like Schick and Gillette are charging for disposable blades. They've also become completely carried away with creating blades with as many as five razors! Apparently you also need a battery for some, why, I have no idea. I used to use Atra Plus double blades with some sort of moisturizing strip. I even bought generic Rite Aid brands which were much cheaper but they were still about $1 per blade. I also typically got only a week out of a razor because of all the shaving cream and stubble that got caught between the blades. Trying to shave Monday after skipping the weekend usually meant changing the blade or trying to scrape all that gunk out of there. Yes, it's what I and most Americans have been raised on and it's definitely easier than a straight edge.

I originally purchased 100 Derby brand blades ($8.49), the plastic shaving factory razor, and a vile of styptic powder (you'll need this) all for about $22. That's 100 blades which last about 5-7 days depending on how thick your beard is. You can do the math but you don't need to be Einstein to know you are saving an unbelievable amount of money on razor blades. The problem with the plastic Shaving Factory razor I bought is that it's simply cheaply made. Eventually the round hinge will wear down and your razor will swing freely.

Full disclaimer: the blood is my own fault. I'm a straight-razor novice. Given time, I'm sure, I would be an expert.

This is a decent, entry level straight razor. If you're given to epileptic fits, seizures, constant tremors in your limbs, or are generally a royal klutz, please steer clear of this product. If the above descriptors do not apply, then read on.

The handle affords a nice grip, the blade holder swings a full 180 degrees to choose the angle most suited to your own style, and the best part ... the angle holds! The last thing one needs to worry about is having the blade arm swing wildly as one prepares to maul one's face.

I had numerous cuts and nicks on the first attempt. The second attempt resulted in a smaller blood loss, but I did see red.
The key is to shave right after a decent shower. Lather, lather, lather. I cannot overstress the importance of lathering up. Even after you've covered the visage under a nice, thick coat of lather, periodically touch it up with the brush dipped in warm water (foam will cool off rapidly on your face).
Plan your shave. This is one morning activity that definitely requires alertness. Have your morning coffee/tea if you're so inclined. Do NOT drink those fluids if they give you the shakes! Plan your attack. Identify the areas you will work on first. Have the dehumidifying fan on, or wait for the after-shower mist to clear. Alert your family members not to unleash any practical jokes right about now.
Start with small, even strokes of the blade. I recommend working on smooth, flat areas like the cheeks and mustache. I bought this razor to use in conjunction with he Parker 22R ([...] A wise move indeed. It will be weeks before I attempt the neck and chin with the straight razor.

I have been interested in straight razor shaving for about the past year. I finally took the plunge and purchased a decent razor at an antique shop. There are two problems, however: 1) I'm not entirely ready to make the financial plunge to buy good water stones and leather strops, and 2) I didn't want to waste all of the Derby blades I have for my Gillette Double Edge safety razor.

Solution? Buy a Parker SR1 "straight razor" as an interim solution!

Okay, I've been using this razor for the past 3 weeks or so with my Derby DE blades snapped in half. The learning curve was about the same as the learning curve I had going into safety razor shaving: about a week and a half.

I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that my shaves are now better than ever. Closer, less irritation... and more enjoyable! All things that I noticed when I went from the Gillette Fusion to a safety razor, only now they're just that much better. As far as the razor itself is concerned, I couldn't be happier. It feels very good in the hand, has a nice weight, and holds the blades very securely. The swing is reasonably tight, so I don't ever feel worried about the angle changing mid-stroke.

If you decide to take the plunge (and I would encourage you to do so if you are even to the point of reading reviews for this razor!), there are three things I would recommend to you:

1) If you don't already have a blade that you prefer, pick up a sample pack of blades from West Coast Shaving and pick what works best for your face/skin. Then you can buy a larger pack of that brand. A 100 pack of Derby blades cost me $20... that's 200 blade refills for this razor!

2) Until you get the hang of straight razor shaving... go slow! You will cut yourself at first: accept this right now.
