This razor is heavier than most, which I like. When you tighten the butterfly the blade is barely showing. So, I just turn the adjustment knob on the base about 1/8 turn to expose a little more blade and it works perfect.
Shave's well, a challenge to hold and use when the handle gets wet
I bought this razor as two of the EJ's I had purchased had broken from repeated tightening of the head to the handle. I loved the EJ's but got tired of blade change procedure (just lazy I guess) and I obviously over-tightened the head to the handle causing the breakage. In any event I elected to go for convenience of blade changing and decided to try the Parker 99R. I have not been disappointed. It's heavier than the EJ and takes a bit of getting used to but I now appreciate the extra weight and convenience of the butterfly opening blade-change. I agree with Tyler Knude that this razor is medium aggressive which should suit most men. I get every bit as close a shave with the 99R as I did from my EJ and in subtle ways, even closer. I use Feather blades with this razor and it so far seems to be a great combination. It's been a month now and I'm happy I made the switch. Adjusting to the extra weight was not a problem and I have had nothing but great shaves. I highly recommend this razor
I have been using a DE Safety Razor for over 45 years starting with my Grandfathers 1931 Gillett 3 pcs. I have use a lot of different razors over the years. When I received this Parker 99R I was a little put off by it's weight. I will tell you now that you can not in my opinion have a better and smoother shaving razor than this one. I gave this razor a 5 but it should really be a 4 1/2 as Parker does not put their name on their razors and with this type of quality they should be proud to have their name on them.
Medium aggressiveness and gets really close almost comparable closeness to Edwin Jagger DE 89. Highly recommended.
