Parker’s barber razors are used in barbershops and shave parlors worldwide. The unique “clip to close” mechanism on this razor keeps the razor blade securely in place and perfectly aligned. Unlike most replaceable blade barber razors, Parker SRP razor has a heavyweight stainless steel blade arm with elegant black finish, in addition to a finished wood handle – not lower quality aluminum. Many have told us that shavette razors perform just like a straight razor — except that there is no honing or sharpening required. Just pick your favorite double edge blade, snap it in half, and insert it into the razor. It’s that simple! If you prefer, we also carry several brands of blades already pre-cut.
