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 87R is a TTO (twist to open) razor, it's quite short and resemble safety razors of yesteryear. During the war all materials were in short supply, and steel that could be used to make weapons would certainly not have been added to add 'appeal' to a razor's handle, or weight to a soldiers backpack. Short and functional, with some real pretty patterns on the handle. A little porker at 85 grams, and standing 87 mm tall. We like this one a lot, a very good looking short handled TTO razor at a price that borders on ridiculously cheap!
