Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
The ONLY Way To Shave
I've been shaving with this razor and the Merkur blades also sold here, for a couple of weeks now. I immediately threw out my popular cartridge razor and the last of the overpriced heads that go with it as that product with it's three blades made shaving an ordeal. Now, I have a heavy beard yet sensitive skin, and after my old Gillette adjustable crapped out on me a few years ago I pretty much thought I had to accept the Mach 3 torture as the only alternative. UNTIL I found this Parker safety razor. It gives me a smooth, pain free shave the way I like it, not too close as the blade gap is very mild. This would be a great first razor for a teenager. If a closer shave is desired this one can certainly deliver using the three pass method against the grain but I just do one pass with the grain and call it good enough. If they ever come out with an adjustable version of this razor, count me in. This razor has already paid for itself by the fact that I dont have to buy another forty dollar pack of Mach 3 cartridges this month or ever again. Blades for this razor cost next to nothing.
