4.0 out of 5 stars Parker Straight is a good starter!
I've been using straight razors for about 4 years now, and amassed a small but high quality collection including Dovo, Thiers-Issard, Soligen. This little razor is a great starter or travel razor . Straight's are not for everyone and there is definitely a learning curve, this little razor would be great for someone thinking about getting into shaving with a Straight Razor...

3.0 out of 5 stars mmmmmm ok
I'm using this razor as a stepping stone to straight razor shaving - with the replaceable blades it is less maintenance. As other reviews have noted, the construction is fairly poor especially the rivets that hold the scales together look like they were beat by an unskilled hammersmith. Otherwise it does the the job its meant to do. The Shark super stainless blades are...

It is a good begginer razor and it is a good price. I can not complain it allowed me to try out a straight and is pretty cheap but will hold up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value, Feb. 10 2013

This review is from: Parker SR1 Stainless Steel Straight Edge Razor and 5 Shark Super Stainless blades
This is my first straight edge razor and purchased the Parker SR1 because I figured if I didn't like shaving this way, I would not have spent too much money on it. The initial 10 times were full of trial and error and cuts and lots of time wasted. Then I did more research on YouTube and have since become quite proficient with it.

The actual product itself is fairly light and sturdy as it is stainless steel. I find it extremely easy to change blades every time as well as manoeuvre it with ease. The blade retracts snugly back and will not unfold by itself. The product is made in India, but this should not serve as a deterrent. The only reason I am giving this 4/5 stars is because in my opinion the handle is too light.

Overall great product especially if this is your first straight edge razor.

Great affordable razor to get into straight edge shaving. Ideal started and a surprisingly close shave for the price. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent starter straight edge razor, March 7 2014

This review is from: Parker SR1 Stainless Steel Straight Edge Razor and 5 Shark Super Stainless blades
it does the job however the quality of the actual blade could be improved. found a few unpolished areas around the corners of the handles and connecting joints. this is probably due to the cheap production process and materials.

overall its an OK starter blade to learn from.

This review is from: Parker SR1 Stainless Steel Straight Edge Razor and 5 Shark Super Stainless blades
I have never had one before and I am still learning. getting a few nicks, but less and less so. I plan on getting a good brush and lather soon but this razor has no problem removing 7 to 10 day old stubble.(with the grain). I finish with my 5 blade and it lasts a lot longer. on the whole, a lot of fun with out the burden of having to strop. blades are inexpensive as well. nice starter to see if you will keep with this type of shaving.
