Customer Reviews

Graphite Version. Nice shave. Gonna be hard to find a better shave. Have been through two shaves with this razor and all I can say is WOW! The graphite color is fantastic and apparently doesn't fade ad chip like other models. I have been using it on the 2 setting so far and have a easy time getting through my thick hair, I shave head and part of my face. Very Very Fast delivery way before scheduled time. Also, it is a heavy razor no pressure needs to be applied. The only downside is the bulk of the razor makes it hard to get behind my ears and trim around my goatee. Other than those two minor issues I am very pleased with this razor. 5Terrific Razor / Great Value! I have used every Gillette cartridge razor since the Trac2, and I am a recent convert to DE shaving. Purchased a Merkur 38c a couple of months ago, and frankly was slightly disappointed - took way too many passes to achieve a great shave. I did some research and then decided to give the Parker Variant a try. If you have decent technique, dial this thing up to 4 or 5 and then be amazed by the results! Remember to use light touch and almost no pressure. 5Top notch In the last month and a half, I've switched from disposable razors to metal safety (not "straight") razors, using foam produced from either shaving cream or shaving soap. I have purchased around five different styles of safety razor. Honestly, because of how the increased weight of the metal affects the handling of the instrument, shaving with a safety razor almost automatically becomes a deeper involvement, not only leading the person to concentrate in a meditative manner, but also exercising the finesse and factors which make now shaving an additionally pleasurable involvement. Of the five different razors I've bought and used in the last month and a half, the Parker Variant's construction, material and design have made for the most professional quality results of the five razors. Theability to adjust the "aggressiveness" of the safety blade's contact with one's face is set by means of the integrally attached "level" selector at the end of the handle. That it is metal, rather than plastic, is a detail that increases one's confidence in the solid construction of the Parker Variant Adjustable and also one's confidence in its longevity as a reliable instrument. Of the five razors I now own and use, the one whose various factors influencing performance I'm most confident in is the Parker Variant Adjustable. 5Cheap material/machining - fell apart after 40 shaves - stay away. Original 2017 review titled "It was good to go back to old technology" see uptade below.This is my first safety razor in four decades or so. It was good to go back to old technology. Parker Variant is a good razor - solid construction and effective blade exposure control syste. I had my doubts when I saw that there opening of the razor and adjustment rely on same mechanism but it works (as long as you align to part at the base correctly - notched part on the same part - as described in instructions). Put the blade in - align correctly and tighten all the way in and you are on setting "1" - really mild and easy to use - if you can shave with disposable, multi-blade razor then you can shave with Parker. You get nice, close shave, with same amount or less skin irritation, you spend less on blades and you do not throw plastic in the landfill.Update (Mar 2019)I had this shaver for less than 2 years. For about a year and half I was growing a beard and other than that I shaved twice a week. So this shaver was used ~40 times total. And it just fell apart. Cheap soft metal combined with bad design and shoddy manufacturing. I cannot believe that want $58 for it. I complained and Amazon was nice enough to issue a refund - they really need to to stop selling it. My father had similar shaver all his life - and he used it every day - without any problems. 1Does everything but shave for you... Perfect weight, and feel. I totally dig the satin look. Add in the ability to dial in the closeness of your shave to broaden the use from newbie to seasoned vet. Blade stays securely in place. I've used this razor with both a feather and astra blade and it gives a very comfortable shave - provided you heed the directions of starting with #1 setting and adjust to your your desired comfort level.I've seen a number of posts requesting a stainless steel offering but I'm not totally sold on the need. 5The best damn razor I have ever used I have been wet shaving for about 3 years now. In that span of time, I have amassed a multitude of safety razors, creams, brushes, pre-shave oils, after shave splashes/lotions, colognes, etc. Wet shaving quickly became a much needed part of my morning routine (I shave every other day), as it provided 20-30 minutes of mental therapeutic bliss. In all honesty, the aromatherapy alone that's associated with the amazing scents of some of these creams/after shaves/colognes and such makes this entire shaving process extremely worthwhile.Which brings me to the Parker Variant. Again, in the 3 years I have been doing this, I have used many different razors - each of them had their pros and cons, and I actually liked quite a few of them. I love my Merkur 34c, I love my EJ De89, I have 2 razors from Maggard razors (the MR11 and MR7 with both the V3 and V2 OC heads) which are phenomenal for the price point, etc. Heck, I even have some inexpensive Chinese razors (Baili TTO - the same one that companies like Vikings Blade sell for like 37 bucks) that I enjoy using from time to time, mostly for traveling. However, despite the fact that I have used ALL of those razors multiple times, I cannot ever remember getting an AMAZING shave with the first use of a razor - but all that changed with my first use of the Parker Variant.After reading the directions that came with the razor, I set it up to be used the following morning after my shower. I used Maggard Razors pre-shave oil, Maggard Razors Brush, Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Cream, and the Parker Variant on setting 2 and a half (my facial hair wasn't long enough to need more blade exposure). Furthermore, while I usually use Feather blades, I decided to use the Shark blades that came with the razor, even though I remembered not liking them the few times I used them. Nothing against them, I just recalled more irritation/nicks and needing more passes after using those blades. Well, I will say that it's a HUGE testament to the Parker Variant how amazing my first pass was with the included Shark blade, because every other time I used that blade the results were subpar. Maybe it's me - maybe I just haven't used Shark blades in a long time, and I have been able to improve my wet shaving skills since then. Either way, the Parker Variant with Shark blades was perfectly fine.So fine in fact, that a normal 3rd pass wasn't even needed. I went for 2 passes, rinsed my face, used some Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel for my after shave splash, and that was that. I got dressed for work, sprayed on some Versace Man Eau Fraiche, my wife (who usually doesn't do this) remarked how great my face looked, and how great I smelled, and I left the house feeling like a freakin' rock star.One more thing - I have used multiple Parker razors in the past as well - none of them are even remotely in the same category as the Variant. Not even close.Sorry for the novella, everyone - I just needed to get off my chest how amazing this thing is. If you are a wet shaving veteran and don't own this razor yet, add it to your collection. You will not be disappointed. If you are a wet shaving newb, or are thinking of getting into it because you are sick of the multi-billion dollar cartridge razor companies pillaging and plundering your bank account (or you just want some morning therapy before you start your day), this is the only razor you will ever need. It's inevitable that you will buy more razors and stuff, as that's just the nature of the wet shaving game, but I will wager that you will keep coming back to your Variant no matter how many other razors you collect. 5Good razor but I do have concerns.. I have to start off by saying that I ve been DE shaving for the last 3 year and this is my 5th razor bought. Out of the box, this razor has some nice weight to it. I ve gotten used to heavier razors so this is perfect for me, not to say that it s extremely heavy, it s just comfortable to me.I like the design of the razor, there are slots on the bottom plate which makes it easier to clean during shaves. This is also the biggest razor that I own, I feel the cap and baseplate are a little bigger than I m used to so it was a bit of a challenge at first to get my moustache area under my nose but I am getting used to it.One thing I noticed right away was that when closing and tightening the razor, mine does not go all the way to the 1 setting or the + setting to the left of the 1 setting. This is different from reviews I read, whether here on amazon or other shave forums. Without a blade, it s slightly past the 1 setting, with using a Gillette Super Thin blade, it s at a 2 as the starting point. This seemed odd to me, so I contacted the seller to which they responded saying, it s normal for the setting to be somewhere between 1 an2 when there is a blade in the razor on the lowest setting. This contradicts what other folks have said in their reviews on shaving forums, but ok. The explanation was odd that I contacted Parker Safety Razor and they gave me the same explanation. Not only that, they mentioned they already responded to my inquiry on amazon. Makes me think the seller and Parker Safety razors are the same, just using different names on Amazon.The reason I am marking the razor down is the fact that for a mass-produced razor, they seem inconsistent. I am getting a starting setting of 2 while others are starting at + or 1 It takes some getting used to which settings work for me.While I am still getting used to the razor, I am getting decent shaves. It s a good razor, and I really like the face that I can adjust the level of aggressiveness during a shave without having to take plates out. 3Last Razor I Will Ever Need! I just received my Parker Variant Adjustable Double Edge Safety Razor about two hours ago and fell in love with it the minute I opened the box. It is everything I expected and more. The weight of the implement is impressive and comfortable in my hand. It inspires confidence. It reminds me of the old safety razors I used when I was in the Military back in the 1960s. I have missed those days and those razors. But I am missing them no more because this Parker Variant Adjustable is everything those old razors were and much much more! -- I set the adjustment on Number 2 for my first shave and I have to say that it fairly glided along easily and I never put any discernable pressure on the razor at all. It was so comfortable I did not want the shave to end. Two passes and my relatively tough beard was gone and what remained was baby-skin smoothness like I remember from the good old days. No nicks, no cuts, no razor burn! Amazing! I am so glad I bought this razor and I have to say that it is so well constructed and such a top quality instrument I believe it will be around long after I am gone. Yes, I would buy it again ... and again if I had to. But as much of a quality instrument as it is I am confident I will never have to buy another one. I believe this razor is absolutely the best choice for either a beginner or an experienced wet shaver and I cannot recommend it highly enough! 5this is the best adjustable razor you can buy Wow, for all the Parker haters! do not listen to them! this is the best adjustable razor you can buy! its really well made, even better than any Merkur adjustable.the adjustment knob is smooth, nice and precise, a real pleasure to use. (far far better than the Merkur Progress or the Megress I have)the grip is outstanding! well made and the calibration of the marks are good, and the construction is sturdy and solid.the blade is keep very tight, and the audible feedback is incredible. I cannot be more pleased with this razor. 51st time face & head shave w/ a de razor I have been shaving my face from the age of 13. I started shaving my head 16 years ago. By the time i started head shaving my go to razor was the Extreme 3.4 years ago i started making soap and wet shaving. Still using the Extreme 3.Less then a week ago i bought the Parker Valiant. As i waited for it to get here i watched 50 or more videos to grasp all the info i can.Today was the day my Parker Variant came in! So excited, the razor looked amazing. I like it so much i did not want to open it.But like a kid waiting to open presents on Christmas day, i could not resist.So i put a Darby blade in it, set it to 1.5 and filled the sink. Set my brush and soap in warm water so i could pre shave and lathered up.Mind you i have never used a (safety razor before).Did 1 pass on my face. It was the greatest shave i've ever had! No nicks, slabs of flesh or irritation what so ever. Did my post routine.I walked around for hours saying great fn shave like i had Tourette's!I did not think it was a good idea to shave my head intil i had shaved at least 3 weeks under my belt.3 hours later i had to shave my head.Did two passes on my head, (no problems what so ever).Amazing! Absolutely Amazing!Granted i do not have experience with ANY other de razor so keep that in mind. But i highly recommend this razor and i look forward to years of great shaves! 5
