I really like this razor, I was using the more "mild" Merkur 23c long handle before. The Parker's handle is a lot thicker and has way better grip while being just a touch shorter maybe 5mm, really good, hefty weight and balance to it.
I was always scared of razors deemed "aggressive". Thinking they would cause irritation. But actually it's the opposite. With mild razors I tend to over shave because I'll have trouble getting certain areas smooth. So a mild razor will end up giving me more redness and irritation from extra friction in certain spots.
The chance to nic yourself is a little higher but you'll be okay. I see people throw dirt on the Parker brand. I guess from earlier in the 2000s maybe some quality control issues with razors lining up and variations between razors of the same model! But it seems like they've addressed those things because it's a good product and I'll be buying a Parker 96R butterfly next.
