One of the great things about a safety razor is that it works under its own weight. With modern multi-blade razors you have to push the razor into your skin to get a close shave.

The folks at Parker have come out with a beautiful new, heavyweight razor that generates an even closer shave than your typical safety razor. It also features Parker’s reliable twist to open mechanism!
