Newly re-designed, Parker's SRX Barber Replacement Blade Straight Razor is a brilliant rendition of the classic Parker SR1. Its radiant full sterling scales are brilliantly complemented by bronze bolsters, accomplishing a classic colour medley, while a delicate Parker brand signature and cross arrow engraving complete the look. With a blade guard made of first-class stainless steel, this razor has a balanced seat in your grasp, as well as outstanding durability.
Once a replaceable halved blade is inserted, a steel blade guard secures it in place, ensuring you a close and comfortable shave. Once the blade is dulled, there's no need to worry about stropping or honing: simply insert a new one, and enjoy a luxury shave without the cumbersome maintenance work. Adorn your personal collection with this exquisite shaver, and revel in a well-loved gentleman's tradition.

Ordering was easy, shipping was fast, yet the preparation and packing was done with care. This is my first straight razor and I was always a dread of trying this because of cost and all the work in sharpening etc. But this uses half of a de blade which I already have. That makes it quick and convenient! Shaver looks great, has a nice weight and feels good in the hand
This razor gave me the best shave I've had in years
If you've always wondered what it's like to shave with a straight razor but you're unsure about the care and upkeep of them, like me...then this is a great introduction. You will see other shavettes listed, but for a little more you get a nicely weighted straight razor. Inserting the safety blade (which is snapped in half) was easy and when the clip is snapped on, the blade will not move. If you're new to straight shaving, I strongly suggest checking out youtube videos on how to use the Parker SRX Heavy Duty. Take your time as this type of shaving requires a lot of precision and concentration. But once you get the hang of it, it really is a VERY CLOSE shave.
I switched awhile a go to a DE safety, and enjoyed that, not just for the economics of the switch. BUT I've been toying with the idea of a straight razor, but feared my ability to hone/strop properly, so this seemed like a logical trade off. It's a close shave. Period. I cut myself a few times the first time mainly because I was cocky from my experience with the safety razor. It's a different experience but I enjoy it!
I've been a wet shaver for awhile now, using a safety razor. I got this, and loaded the blade and tried it once so far. I hacked the hell out of my face, but that's not the razor's fault (my speed and carelessness). It's got a nice heft to it, it's solid construction. Easy to load, I have no complaints other than about my own technique!
