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. The Parker SRX razor has a heavyweight stainless steel blade arm in addition to a stainless steel handle, not lower quality aluminum. Just like 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. It’s that simple!
