First shave with the new Parker O.C. razor.

  1. [FONT=&amp]I just had my first shave with the Parker 24c O.C. and it is so smooth. It seems that Parker put some thought into this razor head before making it. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&amp]I do prefer a short handle so I did change the handle with my Parker 94R. You could not ask for a better or smoother shave. I’ve used many O.C. razors from the Merkur 41c to a Joris. I would say the aggressiveness is about in the middle somewhere. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]This is a fine razor that will always be in my rotation. You can’t beat it for the price.

  5. Looks cool. I prefer that shorter handle too.
  6. Hi Ron,

    I will be receiving my Parker 24C tomorrow and cant wait t use it. My First open comb!! No quality or blade alignment isues??both side of blade equal exposure? Thank You!!

  7. So how was your first shave with it? Tell us about it.
  8. I got a 26C a few days ago, and have shaved with it twice so far. Used a Med Prep blade. I don't have a lot of experience with an OC razor, but I was pleased with it. I got a better shave the second day, seemed I got much closer.
    The razor has a nice heft to it. I don't mind the long handle, I prefer them.
  9. I still love my Parker 24C. I can't get over how smooth it shaves and yet it gives a close BBS shave too. Parker really did their homework before they made this razor.
    I do have a minor complaint that I mentioned in another thread. The head holds water. When I'm shaving over my lips, sometimes water will drip down. Not a big deal. It's a great razor for anyone, newbie or an old pro, you can enjoy this razor.
  10. Love my 26c. Use it more than my DE89l. I think the OC design works better on my face for some reason. I get a bit less irritation from the Parker compared to my EJ. Both provide very good shaves, but I feel my face less after shaving with the 26c. I prefer the standard long handle. I tried a Parker 97r handle, but I thought the balance was a bit better for me with the original.
