Parker is a manufacturer from India that has been producing fine hardware since 1973, you can bet your bottom rupee you are in good hands if you pick one of their products. This is where performance, quality and value for money comes together in razor universe. Their razors vary from fairly conservative to outright Bollywood splendour, and boy do they ever have the moves! Their shaving action ranges from mild to medium aggressive, so basically anyone can use them. The 69CR offers bling and bang! Paired with its good looks you get the versatility of solid safety bar and a open comb bar, the latter well known for being a bit more aggressive to cut your whiskers a tad shorter for special events like your yearly 'ask-my-boss-for-a-raise' day. It is also the best choice for getting rid of longer beard, a couple of weeks old, or even your foot long mustard ridden rag once you realize its not a sensible fashion accessory in Africa, even less so with global temperatures set to rise a couple of degrees every few years. The decagon (bet you got to google this) bands on the handle adds more grip to the already finely knurled handle, it offers superb grip for its 92 grams of bulk. At 108 mm tall it sits nicely in hand, a very cool unisex razor we think!
