The handle on this razor is fluted for a great grip and designed with a knob on the end of the handle for operating the butterfly mechanism. It’s one of the heavier razors done by Parker, which is preferred by many shaving enthusiasts. This particular razor has a two door type opening known as a “butterfly” that, with a twist of the handle, opens to make changing out blades a fast process. This mechanism is a popular design with some serious vintage vibe. The hinged plates can get clogged with soap so be sure to clean out your razor often to keep a smooth shave every time!
