    I have other razors that I like better, (RazoRock Wunderbar Slant and Feather ASD2) but for the price and for a new shaver the Parker 24C/26C razors come in a pretty close 2nd AND for almost $100 less. They are, in the words of Leisureguy Michael Hamm, Comfortable and efficient. What’s not to like. You have to ignore the “open vs closed” comb debate. It, in and of itself, really adds nothing to how a razor will operate in your hand. That is more a function of blade angle and gap as well as your own particular shaving style. The Parker 24C/26C razors are very forgiving of angle and in the end that is what defines a comfortable razor IMHO.

    I have been using the Merkur slant for quite some time now and that is still the most effective razor I own. I do think the “guillotine effect” of the slant does help me get a slightly closer shave than with other razors. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this Parker open comb razor though. Bought it on a whim (like most of my impulse wet shaving purchases!) but am very glad I did. This is my first open comb style razor and I could definitely feel the difference of the open combs. Been using it for a few days in a row now with a feather blade and I’m getting an incredible shave. Its a well made 3 piece style razor and personally I like the black handle, just think its a nice touch. Not quite as close as my slant, hence the 4 stars, but still a great safety razor!

    I bought the Parker 26C and the Fit/Finish is perfect. I had three days of growth and the 26c was smooth and effortless. I was pleasantly surprised because my other head gives me feedback with sound. The Parker had no sound and the shave was butter smooth. This head will most likely be my go to razor. Very good product.

    Perfect shaves every time, by far the best razor for the price. Perfect blade alignment every time. It’s just such a comfortable razor yet effortlessly removes facial hair with ease. It’s a perfect razor for beginners and experts alike.

    I’d highly recommend this razor.

    I have a wide range of razors, from full stainless steel crafter US$185 to $3 eBay ones and this is like the goldilocks story as being just right. It shaves amazingly close, its smooth as butter and cheaper than anything else thats comparable. The 24C has a different handle but the same head too. Toss in a parker best badger brush and your squared away with the best combo bang4buck. You can spend more, but you cant do better, this gives close irritation free BBS! I cant get that with a more aggressive razors, 2 passes is enough and then a cleanup for those harder to get to areas like chin, cheek areas.

    At first I was unsure; but, this is a great razor for me, expecially for several days of growth.

    A very nice 2nd DE razor choice. It was my 2nd razor following the common Merkur closed bar razor head.

    I find this razor to be rather aggressive for a beginner. It is an open comb after all and should be expected to be more aggressive than the common starter razors. Based on the reviews it is quite mild for an open comb razor as well. A R41 must be a real beast.

    After about 6 shaves I am now getting great nick free shaves. It took me that long to reliably soften my touch and adjust to this heavier (about 3 oz.) razor.

    I got the closest nick and irritation free shave of my life last night with this razor, a fresh Astra SP and a nice slick preshave butter under a good soap. I may never try a feather with this guy, as I do not want that much more cutting power. I don’t wish to accept lots of nicks and irritation to get a BBS shave. This guy will get it done without an excessive number of irritating strokes.

    I’ve this razor for just under 12 months and whilst giving a comfortable shave it’s not agressive enough for me I much prefer the Jaws and the r41

    Nice razor, gives a good shave. Definitely more aggressive than a closed comb. Really a good price.

    Fantastic razor, especially for its low cost. Could not be happier with its performance!

    I got this razor last night and was chomping at the bit yo put it to use. I have done some reading about the different OC’s out there and this specific model kept popping up. The shaving characteristics touted on the shaving boards piqued my interest, so I went ahead and made the purchase.

    Loaded up the razor with a Gillette platinum, applied Maggard’s Orange Menthol and went to town. “Whoa!” was the first thing out of my mouth. The shave was so smooth with great feedback. Clean, even, effective shave with minimal irritation, and the only reason I had “some” feedback from my alum block was that I was too comfortable with the razor. I believe that if this razor were to be made in an all stainless build, this could possibly be an instant heirloom success. For the price-to-performance, this razor is top notch. Do yourself a favor and pick one up.

    I have shaved twice now with this razor and it is great! This could very well end up being the only razor I shave with anymore. Great looking razor and the weight feels perfect. I had no trouble with the blade alignment as I’ve read in some reviews about the Parker razors. Great razor and great service from Maggards! Was scheduled to arrive on Monday and it came already on Saturday! Love this razor, I may have to order another one just to have on hand in case something in the future happens to this one! If your looking for an open comb buy this one you’ll be happy you did.

    Clean, smooth, even, close shave from this Parker 26C Open Comb. fyi -I used Gillette 7 o’clock green.

    This is a mildly aggressive open comb razor with a high quality look and feel. I’m extremely happy with the evenness and closeness of the shave. If you have a birthday or special occasion coming up, treat yourself. This one’s well-worth 3 times the price of a similar German made razor. Score Parker, score Maggard’s!

    Best Razor I have every used. Blows every other DE razor away. Shaves so smoothly, it doesn’t feel like it is working, but boy does it ever. This beats every other razor (including Merkur and EJ). It is a steal! Buy one before the seller gets smart and raises the price.
