The Parker 74R Rose Gold DE Safety Razor (Butterfly Mechanism) was released in early 2021. It's a twist-to-open (TTO) razor, meaning that as you twist the bottom of the handle the butterfly doors of the head open up, allowing you to change your blade easily and quickly. This kind of design harks back to the designs of vintage safety razors and many people prefer it to the three piece style.
The 74R features a criss-cross diamond pattern on the handle, including the bottom section used for twisting and opening the head. This gives superb grip, making it suitable for use even in the shower or bath. The main portion of the handle is Rose Gold. The razor is made from brass but is finished in a soft, satin chrome through an electroplating process. We also offer the same razor in full Satin Chrome or Graphite colours.
The handle measures 10cm, plus another 1cm for the head, making it longer than average. It also weighs in at a heavier than average 94g. It will fit all brands of DE blade.

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.
