 Product Reviews

  1. An "Aristocrat" in everything but price!

    Posted by Kenneth on Jan 29th 2018

    I bought this razor on Amazon, but I can definitely tell you Parker has a winner in the 87C. I used to shave with a Merkur 34C, and while it's also a nice razor, it just wasn't efficient enough for my coarse beard with sensitive skin. This razor gives a mild but efficient shave when paired with the right blades (my personal pick is Astra Superior Platinum, but YMMV).

    The fit and finish isn't quite up to those vintage Gillettes, but who cares when the mechanics are spot on? The blade sits damn near perfectly in mine and is held rigidly, just like God and King C. Gillette intended. It's a No. 66 Aristocrat without the vintage scalper markup.

    Howie, this razor deserves every star I'm giving it. You've made a convert out of me.

  2. Great Razor Well Worth Looking At

    Posted by Doc Storch on Nov 16th 2017

    This is as close as you can get to a brand new Super Speed razor. I had my first two passer this morning with an Astra SP and it equals or surpasses my 34C.

    The fit and finish is quite good. My only issue is a slight blade gap between sides but it is very minor. After I try Nacets and 7'OClock greens I can elaborate more on this issue. Also, I suggest a few drops of mineral oil down the barrel before use. It smooths out the action and no squeaks.

    If anyone wants a new razor that closely mimics the classic Gillette's, get this one. I would not waste my time on a Weishi or their clones because they are as mild as shaving with one's hand instead of a razor.

    Thanks for excellent service too.

  3. Another Winner

    Another winner. Becoming a real fan of Parker razors and this seller!

  4. Very Nice!

    Posted by BW on Jun 19th 2016

    This razor looks so close to a 1953 Gillette Aristocrat #66 I had to look twice!
    Very sturdy construction and smooth movement with the butterfly doors.
    Hefty razor, great knurling, mild to moderate with aggressiveness. I love it! I own a couple other vintage razors from the 50s and 60s. This razor hangs right with the others. Quickly moving to number one in my daily shaves.

  5. Parker 87 my new favorite razor!

    Amazing seller! Parker 87 my new favorite razor! Would definitely buy from again

  6. Red Tip-ish

    Posted by Frank on Feb 14th 2016

    The Parker 87R gives a shave reminiscent of the Gillette red red IMHO. The razor offers a mildly aggressive but efficient shave. The classic shorter handle & "hefty" weight add to the shaving experience. The 87R is also well constructed and offers a mirror finish and is modestly priced.

  7. Excellent 2 pass shave

    Excellent 2 pass shave using Astra Superior Stainless blade.
