Parker 99R Double Edge Safety Razor Review
Description
What makes the Parker 99R Double Edge Safety Razor stand out is that it’s longer and heavier than most razors. We find that its length and spiral knurling handle design provide an easier grip. And because of its hefty weight, it didn’t require much pressure to achieve a close shave. We were also impressed by the butterfly doors, which not only look cool but allow for easy blade replacement. It does requires a little more rinsing than usual to clean though and definitely takes some getting used to. Still, we find that the Parker 99R Double Edge Safety Razor makes for a great entry level safety razor.

Made in India, the Parker 99R Double Edge Safety Razor was made out of Chrome Plated Brass for durability and given a spiral knurling design on the handle for extra grip. There have been some cases where the butterfly doors become loose, so just make sure to check that the twist knob is fully secured. And if this is your first safety razor, it will require some practice and proper angling to achieve results. Other than that, we think that this DE safety razor is worth a try.

Other Information:

  • 3.8 inches handle length
  • 4 ounces weight
