Parker 60R Butterfly Open Double Edge Safety Razor Review

There is some sort of revolution that is happening with the way how people shave. Safety razors are slowly coming back and the art of shaving is also slowly being revived. Shaving from an earlier period of time was a bit more difficult and required longer time. Despite this, people are surprisingly getting back to the old fashioned way of shaving with newer designs of safety razors.

Parker 60R Butterfly Open Double Edge Safety Razor has a 4-inch handle. Razors with longer handles make the razor more effective. Newer razors that are produced tend to be longer than the older ones. Long and thin handles are easy on the hands and very stable during shaving. There are people who prefer short handles but it actually depends on the user on how he wants his razor to function.

The other parts of the razor are similar to that of any regular Parker razor. The head opens up through the twist-to-open mechanism. This mechanism is very common among DE safety razors. At the bottom of the handle, you twist the knob to open the handle so that you charge another razor blade.

The frame of the razor is made from solid brass. The alloy is the common material of construction for most Parker razors. Other brands make use of stainless steel. Brass is a heavier alloy and provide better balance.

Parker razors also have that dark and matte look to them. This is because of the nickel finish that is used to coat the razors. It gives the razor a more traditional look and a rougher texture. The texture of the handle is important since it affects how secure you can grip the razor when doing wet shaving.

This razor comes with 5 Shark Super Chrome blades.
