Parker has been making safety razors for over 40 years. Once thought as a second class safety razor manufacturing company, Parker has worked hard over the last few years to improve the quality of their products and now have their own loyal following among those who want a reasonably priced, but good quality razor.
The Parker 29L “Unisex” Long Handle Double Edge Safety Razor is the ideal starting razor for both men and women who are tired of paying the high price for their cartridges or throwing away those easy to break safety razors.
Features of this product include:
- It has a brass frame covered in chrome plating.
- Butterfly opening.
- Comes with 5 shark blades.
- Long and thin handle.
- Sure grip patterned handle.
The 29L “Unisex” razor is designed to be used comfortably by both men and women.
The handle is ideal to meet the needs of those men who want a longer handle when shaving their face, but thin enough for a woman’s smaller hands.
The textured handle makes this razor easy to grip even with damp or wet hands and the butterfly opening makes changing those blades easier than with some other type of razors.
