Released to rave reviews, this Parker Variant Adjustable Safety Razor might be your new favorite, too. For over forty years, Parker has been crafting razors and wet shaving accessories with an eye toward quality and a commitment to customer satisfaction. To that end, they have an extensive line of safety razors to meet or exceed your expectations. But this adjustable option might just meet all your hopes and dreams in one gleaming package.

All brass-construction with chrome-plating gives this utensil a nice weight. The 3.5 inch handle is a nice length with a great non-slip knurling. (Slippery-handed shavers rejoice!). The two-piece design allows for easy blade changes. Just ensure that you match the mark on the cover and the base plate so that the adjustment part of the razor is calibrated correctly. Be sure not to over-tighten!

And speaking of adjustment- this wonderful tool allows you to "dial in" the perfect shave. The knob on the bottom of the handle can be turned to adjust the spacing on the blade for a mild to aggressive shave. 1 is the mildest setting while 5 gives you an aggressive option. It is always best to start on the mildest setting and move up from there as you get used to the razor. Great for beginners to experts alike. You can accommodate all kinds of differences from facial hair thickness to skin sensitivity to experience level. This razor comes in this stunning satin chrome or elegant black.

I recommend this product

Probably the last razor I will want to buy.

I have been using a E. Jagger razor for about 10 years and have liked it a lot, but thought that perhaps I could get a closer shave with an adjustable razor. After reading many reviews, I got the Parker Variant, and haven't used the Jagger since. This think is probably the last razor I will want to buy. It's very solidly made; the quality is immediately obvious, and after the first few shaves I have settled in to where I like it . You can adjust it quite a lot , and at first I got too aggressive, but quickly learned to back off a bit, and I'm getting the closest and easiest shave I've ever had. I think this is very well worth the money in every way and have already recommended it to others.

Shaves great - Blade alignment is quite poor

This was my second one on exchange and though it is not as bad as the first, you can't simply put in a blade, tighten the cap and go because it will be either slightly crooked or off to one side and you'll feel the difference as you shave. I'll be passing it on as none of my other razors have this issue and I don't like fiddling with sharp razor blades to align them

On the aggressive side...not an ideal fit for me, but a decent razor

I'm relatively new to wet shaving, but here's my take on the Parker Variant. I started wet shaving with a Merkur 34C, which I loved and still love. I tend to take a few days off shaving and I have a light, fine beard. If I take a few days off shaving, I still build up a decent growth and that Merkur 34C wasn't quite aggressive enough to go through that growth. So I started thinking about a Variant type of razor. I settled on the Parker, which I thought I'd put on the aggressive setting after a few days growth or just use the less aggressive setting for the everyday shaving. I've found that all settings on the Parker are on the aggressive side. I know all of this is subjective, so if you're thinking you need an aggressive blade, wow, my personal experience can tell you that it was much more aggressive than the Merkur 34C. There are 5 settings on the Parker. I've never used the 4 or 5, and save the 3 for first shave after 6 days kind of shaves. Maybe use the 5 after a month's growth? I use this Parker now, usually at the 1 or 2 setting, for the first pass shave after a couple of days. Then I use my Merkur 34C for the second pass. I find the Merkur 34C does a great job with the details and gets me the perfect wet shave feel while the Parker does a good job going through the first pass on the tough stuff. I notice I knick myself more with the Parker and that it's just a tad too aggressive. For me. Though I have incorporated it into my routine for doing first passes on thicker growth. It seems like a well-built razor and from perspective worth the money, but is probably more for somebody looking for an aggressive shave. I think I'm in the market for the Merkur 37C or Merkur Progress.
