good razor at good price Review by newshaver
this parker butterfly razor is the first safety razor that i have purchased. overall, it is a nice looking razor, and easy to clean and change blades. the bombay doors of this razor on mine are a bit off. when i lockdown the doors, i have to push the high side down so they are level. not a big deal, but i expected the alignment to be better. this is a razor that shaves well, but i found that it took a lot of getting used to to find the right angle. this is a very mild razor in my opinion, and if you don't get the angle right, you are not shaving. the plus side is, it is very forgiving, and it is harder to nick yourself. the weight is nice, and the handle nicely etched so it is very easy to hold, and it will not spin or twist while shaving.
great! Review by Big Parm
wow!!!! what a close shave. You certainly can't get that with a 15 blade gillette fusion..lol
I'm a first time user and this has a slight learning curve. It's a little bit heavy but lets you know your holding onto a razor sharp blade. I am telling everyone i know about this blade and i have nothing bad to say at all!
Great for beginners Review by brandon
Great razor, had no trouble at all using a double edge for the first time. Has some weight to it and feels like very good quality. I would recommend this and look forward to using it again.
fantastic product Review by Maxwell
This is a classic design, built to last. Nice weight to the head, easy to clean and change blades. Great price for the quality.
Great Razor Review by Scotty
This was the first safety razor that I ever purchased, and I have to say that I love this razor. It has produced great shaves so far and is very easy to clean. I believe that I will be a wet shaver for life now.
Great Value for a Well Made Razor Review by SDH
The razor has nice balance to it and good weight. Changing blades is easy with the butterfly assembly. This is my first safety razor and I was a little nervous at first but find this to be very easy to use. Provides a very close shave.

FANTASTIC! Review by Al
I remember watching my dad shave with this type of razor. I was able to shave with the 99R on the very first day that I received it and I haven't looked back. Everything about this razor brings back fond memories, so much so that I am ordering another one as a gift for a friend.
DYNOMITE RAZOR Review by EUGINE KRABBS
THIS RAZOR IS THE BEST. I DON'T KNOW WHY I DIDN'T BUY ONE YEARS AGO. IT'S GREAT WHEN I HAVE A WEEKS GROWTH ON MY FACE AND JUST ONE SWIPE WITH THIS RAZOR AND I'M GOLDEN. NICE AND CLOSE AND CLEAN. UNLIKE A DISPOSABLE RAZOR. WITH A HEAVY GROWTH, I WENT THROUGH 3 TO 4 OF THEM, JUST FOR ONE SHAVE. HOW I DREADED THAT. NOW NO MORE CLOGGED UP RAZORS, JUST A NICE SMOOTH SHAVE ALL THE TIME. "AND I AIN'T LYING" IF YOU'RE LIKE ME AND DON'T LIKE TO SHAVE EVERYDAY BUT, DREAD CLOGGING UP NUMEROUS DISPOSABLES FOR JUST ONE SHAVE, THIS IS YOUR BABY. BUY IT AND SUFFER NO MORE.
Excellent Razor Review by Bigguy
This is a beautiful instrument for shaving and gives a very close shave. I used a 5 blade razor before owning this one and never thought it could shave as close, it does, even closer.
The Parker Vintage Butterfly Safety Razor 99R is an excellent razor. Review by Shelly
This razor gives a clean shave and a close one. I would recommend this razor to all men and women.
Made to shave Review by Big Sexy
This reminds me of the razor the I inherited from my father.
I can't say enough about the shave I got with this well balanced razor.
Just enough wight to shave my head and not nick the hell out my head and moves across your face smooth.
I think it will work well Review by mpmoriarty
There was a slight learning curve, but after a week, I believe that I am about 95% there. I would not suggest trying your first shave during your work week, since you will want to take a little time when first trying out the razor.
I get a good close shave, and the blades last for at least the 7-10 shaves that was advertised.
My biggest issue to date is figuring out a disposal plan. I amtrying this so that I do not constantly buy throw-away razors, but I also don't want to throw naked blades directly in the trash. I'm thinking about getting a little mason jar and lid, and filling that with the spent blades.
Love it ! Review by Michael
After shaving all my life with disposable razors I tried this razor and LOVED IT ! I will NEVER go back to disposable . There's a reason they call it a " classic shave " , it's simply the best !
quality Review by Travis
This is a high quality razor for a great price. The opening mechanism at the bottom of the handle makes it easy and safe to change out blades. its heavy feel makes it as nice to hold in your hand as it feels against your face. After a year of use, it still looks brand new.
You will NOT regret it. Review by Avery
let's start off by saying i bought this for my boyfriend on a whim. He'd been complaining about shaving and pointed this site out to me, so i decided to buy him a little gift. After reading some waffling reviews we got a little nervous. after all, it was his first safety razor. He nervously gave it a try and can not go back to regular shaving! He can shave daily now with no irritation, no pain, and believe it or not no knicks or cuts! Not to mention how good he looks and feels now. I recommend this to any man or girlfriend buying to her man who wants a proper shave to feel like a proper man.
The last razor I will every buy! Review by Carter
This is by far the best razor I have ever used. I love the heavy feel. Safe and easy blade changing. A breeze to keep clean. Has a classy look to it of a time gone by. I use the shark super chrome blades with it. You will save a ton of money buying the blades vs. buying replacement cartridges. I would suggest this razor to anyone looking for a double edged razor.
Outstanding in All Aspects Review by Mark
This razor is a quality instrument. I am not sure why there are other safety razors of inferior quality to this one that cost much more. All in all this is a well made, well engineered quality safety razor. Best purchase made in years!
Classy Review by Ryan Patrick
I bought this razor to see how good of a shave I could get. The disposable blades I was getting seemed like a waste of money and they were. This is very well the last razor I will have to purchase.
Makes It Easier Review by Tim
Makes it easier to change out a DE-safety blade because i don't have to touch the top cover. Just twist the base, open it up and swap out. Feels pretty solid and seems durable.
