Parker Safety Razor
Parker Safety Razor has been a worldwide leader in razor innovation and design since 1973. Family owned and operated, Parker is known for producing exceptional quality, precision engineered shaving instruments. All of their products are handcrafted and undergo extensive engineering and quality testing. Every razor is a work of art and precision.
The Parker 66R
The 66R continues in the Parker tradition of excellence with a solid brass frame, butterfly open mechanism, and Parker’s world famous smooth shaving head design. The Parker 66R is noted for its weight (it’s the heaviest model we carry) which makes cutting through the toughest beards easy. The textured handle ensures a sure grip, even with wet slippery hands. This big boy won Grooming Lounge’s Handsome Awards in 2016.
The Butterfly Open, or Butterly Twist-to-Open (TTO) design is reminiscent of vintage Parker razors with hinged plates that open to allow convenient access to the blade. Changing blades is simple and effortless – simply twist the knob on the bottom of the razor to open the butterfly doors and drop in a new blade. You can view a video of how to change a TTO blade on Parker Safety Razor’s Instagram page.

The Beauty of Safety Razors
- Less expensive. Shaving with a safety razor versus conventional plastic cartridge razors is much more economical. Double-edge blades cost about 10 cents per blade versus the average cartridge blade which costs over $4!
- Considerably closer and more comfortable shaves. Safety razors offer a smoother, less irritating shave by design. Because the single-edge blade cuts the hair directly at the surface (vs. below the surface with cartridge razors), you’re able to avoid painful bumps and ingrown hairs.
- The eco-friendly choice. Safety razors allow you to get a superior shave without generating the environmental waste that plastic cartridge razors and blades produce. A single Parker razor will last for years and the blades themselves are recyclable. A safety razor is a fantastic zero-waste choice that you can make daily to reduce plastic waste.
- Handsome & functional. Parker offers a wide array of designs and finishes to capture your style. Every razor is a handcrafted work of art.
