Product Reviews
4.25 Stars
I've always loved the TTO Butterlfy-door razors. The Parker 99R is well-made, and the long handle is nice for just letting the razor do all the work. I've had zero problems with this razor. It's easy to load, easy to clean, and shaves beautifully, and the blade alignment is right on the money. It's a fairly mild razor, but paired with a sharp blade like a Pol-Silver, or the now-defunct Gillette 7 O'Clock Blue Label, it gives a very nice shave without nicks or cuts. With a more mild blade, it would be a great "intro" razor for someone just starting wet shaving or getting back into it after a long hiatus. The reason I knocked it down to 4.25 stars is the handle can be a little slippery when it's wet or if you happen to get any shaving cream on your hand. I love the handle design but wish the grooves were slightly deeper for a better grip. The 92R model seems to take care of this with the black, cross-hatched handle design. Other than this minor nit-pick, the 99R is a very good razor, and it seems like it will last a good long time.<
No Complaints about the 99R
I've been using the 99R for about a year now, and I have absolutely no complaints. I've been pairing it with Personna Lab Blues most of the time to achieve a BBS with little or no irritation on most days. The weight and length of the razor is perfect for me, and I have had no problems with the razor's mechanics. Doors shut tightly with the blade perfectly aligned every time. Highly recommended.
Parker 99R Solid TTO
This razor is nicely nickel-chromed. Blades seat well and the blade exposure is equal for both sides. The TTO mechanism works perfectly. The handle's weight is easily counteracted by shifting your grip. Just place your index finger along the grip, and the razor is at perfect balance. Delivers close and comfortable shaves with an Astra blade for me, but YMMV
Poor design
I did not like this razor at all. 75% of it's weight is in the handle making it feel very awkward in the hand. On the one I received, the silo doors did not line up properly when closed and the safety bar was misaligned from one side versus the other. One would guess this is not ideal when you consider the fact that this part is primarily responsible for holding the blade straight. The shave itself was decent enough I suppose. In my opinion, the 22R is a far better razor than this.
My First DE
This was my first DE after i had a temporary moment of insanity with straight razors. Overall the weight is good for me. MY cheeks, mustache and front of chin are all good.
1st Safety Razor
This was my first DE safety razor and despite my fears of accidentally slicing my own throat and dying alone, naked in my bathroom, I wanted a better shave. I got one. The grip on the handle isn't the best, but that may be my technique. I find the angle easy to manage and the twist-to-open secures the blade in place. I don't think the razor will last longer than a year or two in that regard. Overall a really decent razor to start out with I think.
