Is that the Parker 90 R you are talking about that you tested? I wanted to buy that as my first razor but I went for the Gillette adjustable instead the vintagemadmedic said:I have just bought one, and it is a nice razor. As you say very much like a Superspeed. Normally I use a Merkur HD which is absolutely fantastic, but sometimes in the evenings I need a light shave as a touch up, and this is ideal!
It is also getting extra use at the moment, as I am expanding my collection to include soaps. As you all know.......lathering is a little different from lathering up creams. The Parker is gentle and more forgiving while I get the technique right!
Interesting about it being mild like a SS. I saw a thread not too long ago about Parkers, someone said his was super aggressive. But they have a ton of different models available and no reference site to detail the differences between them all.
Is this where you retired your Parker?
