The Parker 22R Safety Razor is a good place to start if you are new to DE Shaving and don't want to invest in an expensive safety razor. The razor features a butterfly door opening mechanism for easy blade changes, gunmetal finishing and a nicely machined handle. The 22R is of similar design to the Gillette Superspeed.

Since the Gillette is out of production, the 22R is a good choice if you like that design but want something new. The Parker 22R is a fairly aggressive razor so if you have sensitive skin or a light beard, this should be taken into consideration. Given it's price, the Parker 22R represents a good value but you may have to sacrifice some quality. Other, more expensive razors will probably offer a better fit and finish. This is one of the Top Sellers on Amazon so that is saying a lot about the popularity of this razor. Overall, the 22R is a good choice for those new to DE Shaving not wanting to invest a lot, it also makes a great backup or travel razor.

    This is one of my favorite razors. Couple spots in the finish could be better, but it gives a great shave. Try various blades and you’ll be a satisfied owner, I know I am.

    I think it is a matter to tneichque and learning how to use the tool rather than the tool being a bad one. It takes more skill to shave with a SE and there is less instruction around. When I shaved the right side of my face was fine but the left and under the chin was a disaster. I hold my razor with my right hand and that may have led me to not getting the angle correct. I will try it again when I feel braver and don’t have to go to work for a few days in case I need to heal up.

    I just bought the Merkur 23C and have been very pleaesd with it. The longer handle is nice, and though it is a bit more aggressive than some of the shorter ones, I have not had a problem adjusting. And it is not a very expensive razor either.

What do you think about the Parker 22R?
