Parker’s Shavette razors are used in barbershops and shave parlors worldwide. The unique clip to close mechanism on this razor keeps the razor blade securely in place and perfectly aligned. Unlike most shavettes, the Parker SR1 razor has a stainless steel blade arm and a stainless steel handle, not lower quality aluminum. Similar to using a straight razor without the required honing or sharpening. Just pick your favorite double edge blade, snap it in half, and insert it into the razor.
