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.
