Quality build and blade angle is darn near perfect. Definitely a heavier razor but in my opinion the weight offers better control. Originally bought this for travel use, but after a week of trial, I made it my daily razor.
The Parker 98R is a " Super Heavyweight" 3-piece double edge safety razor. It has a wonderful heft and its knurled handle make it terrific for use with wet and soapy hands. Parker's famous 3-piece razor head delivers an excellent shave - both close and comfortable -- it ensures precise blade allgnment.
