Parker 55SL-SC Semi-Slant Safety Razor, Satin ChromeParker
Parker is a well-known Indian company in the traditional wet shaving world. It’s a family owned and operated brand house and have been producing fine shaving tools since from 1973. Parker has a wide range of designs from classical designs to modern ones, open or closed comb heads and even butterfly head designs just like old Gillette safety razors. It’s a hardworking company to satisfy their customers and improving their build quality with each new model.
The slanted head holds the razor blade in a guillotine like bent fashion. This strange approach isn’t new in traditional wet shaving world. The logic behind slant bar design; as the blade cuts the whiskers in an angled way, resulting a very smooth and close shave with fewer passes compared to regular safety razors. It can cut any types of whiskers with ease.
The Parker 55SL Semi-Slant Safety Razor is a 3 piece design of Parker that has the advantages of a slant bar razor (more cutting surface on each whisker due to the blade angle) without the aggressiveness and dramatic blade exposure associated with other slant razors.
Parker’s Semi-Slant safety razors are milder than the typical slant, combining the best of a slant razor and a conventional safety razor. Since the blade angle is torqued, this razor cuts the hair at an angle instead of straight on, resulting in a very efficient shave. The Semi-Slants are great for those with thicker, more coarse hair, as well as for wet shavers with sensitive skin. We recommended using very little pressure when shaving with our Semi-Slant for excellent results.
Parker Shaving products are handcrafted in India as a result of well engineering and extensive design tests.
