- pass shave
Not much of a fan of this type of adjustable razors. Nevertheless, for the price it’s a good razor at a fair price! I prefer the old Gillette Adjustables or the Rockwell Razors!!!
I love the Variant, it’s a beautiful razor and a great shave.
A good choice in adjustable razors.
Solid, substantial, keeps its adjustment during the shave, and no plastic parts. Easy to grip securely. I like it a lot. It came accurately calibrated. At the #1 position the Variant provides me a very smooth and close 2 pass shave. I found the #2 position aggressive. The blood kept washing the lather off (just kidding), but approach the higher levels with caution.
Love the razor, adjusts easily and has a wide range of adjustability. Smooth and nonirrating shaves.
I've been happy using double edge safety razors for about 7 years. And I like trying a new razor now and then. Nothing I have owned, not Jaggers or Merkurs (even Merkur adjustable), beats, or even equals this Parker adjustable. There is just no contest.
