Details

Since 1973, Parker have been a worldwide leader in safety razor innovation and design. The Parker 60R DE Safety Razor (Butterfly Mechanism) is a beautifully crafted double edge safety razor, featuring a butterfly twist-to-open mechanism.

  • Overall length: 110mm
  • Handle length: 100mm
  • Weight: 85g

Butterfly razors typically fall under closed comb razors, functioning in the exact same way once they are set up for shaving. The feature that separates them from three-piece closed comb designs is the way in which the blade is inserted. These types of razors have a twist-to-open function at the bottom of the handle, reminiscent of vintage razor designs. The head has hinged plates that open when the bottom cap is twisted, allowing easy and convenient access to remove and replace blades. This also allows for easy access to the inside of the blade head for ease of cleaning.

These razors offer what is referred to as a ‘mild’ shave, one that restricts blade exposure but still offers a close and precise shave. The milder shave achieved makes it the perfect choice for those new to using a DE and the go-to for daily shaving for new and experienced shavers alike.

All DE razor blades are a standardised size and shape and therefore any DE blades you purchase will be compatible with this razor. When paired up with a quality shaving brush and soap, this product will deliver a smooth and comfortable shave every time.

The combination of the lined pattern on the handle along with the intricate engraving not only looks appealing but it enhances wet grip, making it much easier to control the razor and more enjoyable to use as a result.

Parker are renowned for their popular butterfly mechanism designs with plenty of alternatives to choose from. For more simplistic handle designs, try the Parker 92R, the Parker 99R, or the Parker 29L.

The Parker family owned and operated business creates razors that are manufactured to the highest standards and enjoyed by customers around the world. All of Parker’s safety razors are lovingly assembled by hand. Parker’s goal is to help customers enjoy the most comfortable shave possible.


Customer Reviews


Great purchase!
I'm really pleased with the razor. The razor has a quality feel and is a nice weight which means it glides across your skin with minimum pressure.

A great beginner's choice.
An excellent beginner’s DE razor. Well balanced with a long handle for those of us with big hands. It is sturdily built and well-engineered. The grip is good enough, even when your hands are wet and soapy. The two minor negative points are: 1. The difficulty of keeping it clean, an old toothbrush allows you to give it a good scrub to keep it shiny and bright, but this is an issue common to all butterfly mechanisms. 2. The mechanism of the butterfly razor can also loosen during a shave and occasionally requires tightening. This is just annoying rather than problematic. Given its price, it is great value for those who want to start DE shaving on a budget. I used it six days a week for four months and it gave a great shave every day. I would highly recommend it as a good entry-level introduction to DE shaving.

Stylish, great quality.. Built to last a life time.
I've just bought one of these for my son. Until now he's used disposable razors (he's 18). He asked for a proper razor (like mine). He's over moon with it.

Plastic Packaging
I purchased this razor for myself and my mum as we are trying to cut down on use of plastics. The razor itself I can give only good reviews for, it is a better shave than I have had from any razor I have used before. It is easy to change the blade and not only does it have a nice aesthetic but it also has a nice weight to it, meaning that no pressure is required whilst shaving. The only issue I had with the product was the packaging, the plastic used in this could be minimised or removed, although better in the long run for my plastic use, some of the initial packaging was not appreciated.
