Details

Since 1973, Parker have been a worldwide leader in safety razor innovation and design. The Parker 99R DE Safety Razor (Butterfly Mechanism) is a beautifully crafted double edge safety razor featuring a butterfly twist-to-open mechanism.

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.

The butterfly twist-to-open mechanism is reminiscent of vintage razor designs. Butterfly style razors have 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 to allow it to be sufficiently cleaned.

The Parker 99R is suitable for those new to wet shaving and experienced shavers alike. Many people new to using double edge safety razors favour the butterfly mechanism for the ease of changing blades.

The razor is crafted from chrome plated brass for durability. The attractive handle design features a barber pole style engraved pattern, giving the razor an aesthetically pleasing appearance and enhanced wet grip. The longer handle design allows for greater control when shaving harder to reach areas.

Any double edge razor blades will fit this razor, allowing the user to pair it with their favoured brand or to try out several brands to discover which suits them best. When paired up with a quality shaving brush and soap, this product will deliver a smooth and comfortable shave every time.

Parker are renowned for their popular butterfly mechanism designs with plenty of alternatives to choose from. For alternatives designs, try the Parker 60R Butterfly Mechanism DE Safety Razor, the Parker 92R Butterfly Mechanism DE Safety Razor, or the Parker 29L Butterfly Mechanism DE Safety Razor.


Customer Reviews


Great Razor!
I have used a Merkur 34C for about five years (since I started wet shaving), It has been my go to and favorite because of it's perfect balance and level of aggresssion. When I bought this I was hesitant because I read many review that this razor is very aggressive. From my experience I strongly disagree and believe it to be just slightly more aggressive than the Merkur 34c. It is heavy duty, so bearing that in mind if you use it with the correct technique and applying no pressure there is no issue. It's a razor for beginners and experienced users alike. The butterfly mechanism is really convenient, even though I don't find changing a two/three piece razor to be an issue. One thing I have noticed though, because of the butterfly mechanism the head is slightly larger so you do have to make sure that the head is angled correctly, again not really a big issue. The grip is fine but I think the razor will slip out soapy but not wet hands. It is a great razor and because of the price difference between this and the Merkur 34C, this is a razor I would recommend in the 0-£25 price rage. The razor feels well built and of premium quality. I'm glad I bought it!

Excellent service and swift delivery with a lovely free sample will most certainly use your company again.
The standard set by parker is solidified in this razor .a great choice for beginner or longtime shaver. The weight of the razor provides a close shave .the length of the handle makes it easy to grip

Excellent old style razor
Good quality and feels built to last This is my first DE razor so nothing to compare it to other than various twin / triple blade cartridge efforts .
i have a very light beard growth so find it shaves just as well as any razor i have used though I noticed shaves improving more with practice . i find even with several passes including across grain and directly against i never have an irritated face .
This is probably due to the extra care and attention to technique that these razors require, plus having only one blade cutting with each stroke.

Overall it makes shaving an enjoyable experience . Highly recommended to anyone wanting to move away from plastic non recyclable. over hyped multi blade razors.

Superb Quality and Finish. A good Grip and Weight.
I keep two butterfly razors. One (Parker) sits in my overnight grab bag. My daily razor was a German brand beginning with M. Due to the hard water in my area the thread on the butterfly action kept getting clogged up with Limescale and seizing.

Lovely product
This is my first double edged safety razor. I bought it because I wanted to stop throwing away cheap, plastic, disposable razors. It's good quality - especially for a beginner - and a pleasure to use. Customer service has been good but it would be nice if The English Shaving Company would upload a 'how to' video tutorial onto its website for beginners. I also want to point out I'm a woman and this product works perfectly well on underarms and legs too, not just beards!

Parker 99r
I like this razor very much....it's chunky, heavy but well-balanced and easy to manipulate.
A word of warning....I find it an aggressive razor, but that's why I bought it!
Well built and easy to open, I'd buy again, if anything happened to this one!

Parker 99R DE razor
Been wet shaving for 40 plus years. I will say that this razor is NOT very good as a wet razor should be. It is very aggressive on your skin and face and would not recommend this one for a beginner or intermediate shaver.
Buy a Merkur 34C Heavy Duty Safety Razor for best results.

Parker 99R DE razor
Always be a wet shaver for some 50 years. This razor is very aggressive to your face. This would be a medium plus razor. Its is also very heavy in the hand. It cut my face six to eight times on my first shave with it.
I would not recommend this for a first time shaver, even a pro shaver would struggle.

Excellent Quality for the Price
excellent quality for the price, with good balanced weighting and easy to use butterfly opening. It is more safe than some others since narrower opening, so takes a bit of getting used to. but I can get a very good shave with this.
