These safety razors from Parker are crafted for a luxuriously close and comfortable shave.
BUTTERFLY Butterfly razors are also known as twist-to-open razors, which allow convenient access to the blade. This design allows for fast blade replacement and is a popular option for many wet shavers. We offer 3 butterfly options: Graphite & Satin Chrome, Satin Chrome, and a Short Handle (3in.) razor in Chrome.
THREE-PIECE The three-piece razors offered by Parker Safety Razor are quality pieces designed to last for generations. This design dates back to safety razors from the early 1900s. We offer two 3-piece options: Black Resin and White Resin.
WHY DO SAFETY RAZORS GIVE YOU A BETTER SHAVE?
Shaving with a safety razor reduces skin irritation, shave bumps, and ingrown hairs that are common with cartridge or electric razors. The main reason is that with a safety razor you only have one blade against your skin at any time.
If you use a 5-blade cartridge razor and go over an area of your face 3 times, you have now exposed one area of skin to 15 passes of a blade. In comparison, if you are using a safety razor, you are only exposing the skin to one blade at a pass. The fewer times that you rake your face with a blade, the happier it is going to be.
HOW DO I USE A SAFETY RAZOR?
After lathering the skin with our Shaving Soap and Shave Brush, determine the direction of your facial hair, and holding your Safety Razor at a 30° angle, shave with the grain in short, straight strokes, gliding over the skin, not pushing into the skin.
Using a safety razor can have a bit of learning curve, especially when it comes to shaving legs, but as long as you use caution, and don't "press and drag" like with cartridge razors, you can avoid nicks.
