This razor is a steal for the money. More aggressive than the Merkur line and shaves better than the Razorocks line. 12th DE I own and could easily see it being my favorite.
The Parker 97R is an outstanding razor. It has a traditional 3- inch long handle, which is crafted from solid brass and chrome plated. The knurled pattern on the handle provides an excellent grip - even with soap covered hands. This razor's precision engineering and heft are no challenge for tackllng the toughest of beards. This razor is an excellent choice for both new and experienced safety razor users.
