The Parker 96R butterfly open is one of the most popular models based on its classic good looks, intermediate weight and textured black and chrome handle. It has a thinner diameter handle, so it is great for those with smaller hands. It has Parker’s precision engineered twist-to-open head, a nice heft and a wonderful balance. This is an excellent razor for new and experienced wet shavers.

Weight: 3 3/4 oz.

Good razor, sits well in the hand, the textured handle give a good feel. The blade sit´s Square in the mount, I would have liked a better cutting angle like on my Edwin Jagger 30% (this Parker seems to be about 25%), but angeling the razor will give a good shave. I give it 4stars.

The Parker 96R is a great razor. If you are looking for a great day to day razor this one is it. It's smooth and perfect for someone who is concerned about razor irritation. I did three passes with it and no irritation. I have two Merkurs, Muhle and an Edwin Jagger, but this is so smooth I shave with it the most. I'm buying my father and brother each one this Christmas.

The Parker 96R is a very good razor. It reminds me of the old Gillette razors I used years ago. The razor is well built quality razor. The only fault I can find is that it doesn't shave as close as my two Merkur safety razors. I love the butterfly design. It makes cleaning a breeze.

This is a very good modern analogue to the old Gillette Slim Twist razor. Gentle and easy to use, this razor quickly became my go-to daily razor. I love the butterfly mechanism a lot more than re-assembling 3 piece razors. Affordable, well balanced and gentle. Hard to get a better combination.
