Hello,

Been looking for s new TTO, saw this one on Amazon. Says its new and they have not even loaded it on the Parker website. Looks like the J Hempel spiral barber pole 2.

I should get in 2 days. Fingers crossed

Thanks
Ron.

That's a good looking razor.  Report back on how it shaves.

So first shave this morning. This is my first TTO and was a very mild close shave. Would compare it to ATT M1 setup I have.

Your pics look nicer than the one on Amazon.  I have one that should arrive tomorrow.  Looking forward to trying it out.

Lovely razor - Parker don't get enough love around here, even if I'm very happy with my 22R that has a head that look identical to your 87R Smile

That really looks sharp.  Don't know much at all about Parker razors.  What's their quality like?

They've made tremendous strides quality-wise over the past few years. They used to be sub-Merkur (which isn't bad in my opinion) but I think they are between Merkur and Muhle these days.

Thanks - I might have to take a closer look at them.

For the non SS or Ti razor. I do like this 87R better than my merkur 38c and muhle R89 twist.

Interesting - my Muhle R89 is probably #1 of my [now growing] collection, and my Merkur HD second with the Progress a close third.  Case growing stronger for looking at the 87R.  Thx.

Just received mine from Amazon. Blade alignment is way off. Looks like a Slant. Back it goes. OBW looks and feels cheap next to my Red Tip and Aristocrat. Will not be ordering another one.

Sounds like what I'd expect from Parker...  Confused
