Parker's Newly Introduced Convertible Safety Razor comes with both our open comb and closed comb base plates. The open comb gives a milder shave and the closed comb has greater blade exposure for a more aggressive shave. It's like getting two different razors for the price of one!
The handsome heavyweight handle is made from brass with electroplated brass finish and chrome accents.
Closed Comb Base Plate: Parker's famous 3-piece razor head delivers an excellent shave - both close and comfortable, ensuring a precise blade alignment. The closed comb head is the same as the one on all of our Parker three piece models - each part disassembles after screwing off the head from the handle to change the blade or the closed/open comb plates.
Open Comb Base Plate: Since being launched in 2013, Parker Safety Razor's "Open Comb" has been the buzz of the shaving community. It is engineered to provide an extremely smooth shave without being overly aggressive. The open comb design stretches the skin, delivering a very close shave.
We recommend this razor for both beginners and experienced wet shavers alike....everyone likes to keep their options open! As they say, "Two heads are better than one."
Razor type: Three-Piece Convertible Safety Razor, Open Comb & Closed Comb Heads
