In 15 years of barbering, I've tried many different loadable safety razors handles. There isn't anything special about any of them, and the Parker straight razor is not an exception. What I've found from experience is that the most important components of a good straight razor -- are two things -- the quality of the blade and the weight of the handle.

Now, the safety razor manufacturers aren't responsible for the blades, so their off the hook in that department. However, they are responsible for the the design and weight of the straight razor handle. This is the area that all safety razor handle companies have a long way to go -- creating a product that resembles a REAL straight razor.

Personally, the Parker and Dovo Shavette are on the same level as any of the $10 and under handles. (I can't speak for the Razor Artist Club SS by feather because I haven't used it, but I hear it's pretty good.)

Anyhow, the weight of real straight razor allows the blades to do most of the work, which is more comfortable for the user. As a barber, I'm limited by state barbering laws. For health reasons, we aren't allowed to use real straight razors that require stropping and honing. Otherwise, I would only use an old school straight..

The Parker is really just another cheap overpriced safety razor handle. With a good double edge blade, it will get the job done, but it won't impress you in the process. I'd only recommend this model to a barber or someone that already uses a real straight razor, but doesn't always have the time to strop and hone it.

I hope this helps...

The Parker PTB is my first straight razor, albeit a disposable single edge blade type of razor. I've always wanted to see if I could shave using a straight razor but the initial cost was very prohibitive being in the $300-$400 range just to start up with razor, strop, soap, etc. The Parker PTB Shavette allows me to attempt this with very little money out of pocket, 1/10th of the cost at least. At approximately $20, I could not pass this up.

I ordered the Parker PTB along with the "Colonel Conk Watertight Travel Container with Soap" and chose the free shipping. I received both pieces in a single Amazon box from FedEx within two days instead of the expected 7 days or more I was expecting that normally comes with these free shipping offers.

The Parker PTB was packaged nicely in a small box with a black sleeve covering the box. The floor on the inside of the box was lined in what I would consider a red velvet type material indicating some "class" to the Parker line. Within the Parker PTB box was housed the actual PTB, 6 replacement single-edged razor blades and illustrations describing how to "load" the razor blades into the PTB's head.

The Parker PTB has a black plastic handle that does not feel to be flimsy at all, which was surprising. It feels very sturdy to the touch and while shaving. The metal arm appears to be stainless steel and is also sturdy to the touch and during use. The head that holds the disposable razor blade pushes out the end of the metal arm. To load the blade, I slid the entire head out of the metal arm for ease of inserting the blade. The hardest part I found was actually attaching the blade to the head and getting the top portion of the blade beneath the retaining metal flap that holds the razor snuggly against the inside of the head.

The only complaint that I have with this razor is that initially it is rather hard to load. But once you have loaded it several times, a technique is developed that EASES the process; still some dexterity is required for loading.
Other than that, I find this "shavette" (and I would guess all others, I suppose with some exceptions,) HARDER to use than a standard straight razor. I mostly have no nicks with a straight razor but do, occasionally with this Parker. With this style razor one must be more exact with the angle of the blade, (as compared to a straight razor,) as approaching a more shallow angle will cause the blade to come off the skin and a more steep angle increases the possibilities for razor burn and nicks. For me, the bottom line is: this is a razor that will require your attention to detail and once mastered is suitable for shop use as well as a daily shaver. (As you know, in shops, the possibilities of health issues are present with standard straight razors and largely absent with shavettes.)

AFTER 8-10+ SHAVES:
The more I use this razor the more I like it. I am using Super-Max Platinum blades (snapped in half,) and have had the closest ever shaves, (which includes Mach3 shaves.) Some people question the quality of this razor; I find it quite good, actually exceptional for the price. GREAT PURCHASE, NOT JUST A TRANSITIONAL RAZOR AS SOME BELIEVE. Razors like this are used around the world by professionals everyday.
Other considerations concerning straight razors; to keep the razor shave ready, you will need to hone, which requires honing stones (AND SKILL.) You will need a strop and be willing to take the time to maintain the razor; none of these things are required for a shavette.
