The Parker 56R Rose Gold DE Safety Razor was introduced in late 2020 and is an excellent addition to their already-numerous range. Weighing in at 82g, it has a nice heft, and measuring in at just over 10cm (11cm including head) it's a razor with a longer handle. A lovely shaver to add to your collection.
The handle is textured with a criss-cross diamond pattern, giving excellent grip even when wet, making this ideal for use in the shower or bath. The larger portion of the handle is rose gold in colour, providing a soft contrast to the rest of the piece and its gleaming chrome finish.
The closed-comb Parker head on this razor makes it ideal for beginners or those who prefer a mild shave, maybe to prevent too much irritation to the skin. The top plate screws off with your fingers, allowing you to easily replace the blade every four to five shaves. It bears the word 'India' on the underside of the base plate.
Parker is a family-owned business, belonging to the Grover family in India. It was established in 1973 and over the years has grown to become one of the foremost manufacturers of safety razors worldwide, especially for those looking for a lower cost but still high quality product.
This razor comes in a brown cardboard box with zero plastic packaging. This makes it an ideal gift idea for those looking to reduce their plastic waste - switching to DE razor shaving and removing plastic disposable razors and cartridge heads from your bathroom is great for the planet.
