I dropped my Parker 26c razor of the floor and although it still shaves fine, it is more difficult to screw the handle on to the top. The post might have been bent.

So my question is: do you know any stainless steel razors that shave/perform similar to the Parker 26c? I really love the razor and I'd like to get in more durable material.

Thanks!

Perhaps not the answer you were hoping for, but the Wolfman OC is similarly comfortable and smooth for an open comb razor.

Wolfman's are pricey but I'll definitely consider it if it's as smooth as the Parker. Thanks!

[Image: lOVIhIW.jpg]I imagine the solution is a less durable floor. No razor, no matter what raw material or quality of execution is meant to be dropped. You may consider having a machinist add a lanyard ring and pick up an old military surplus neck lanyard. Winky

Although not SS, the Maggard V2 open comb head could be an option.

The Parker is an excellent razor and quite reasonable....just buy another one and don,t drop it....why spend more?...there are 3 handle variations 2 available in the USA and one more from Connaught (the solid brass barber knurl)...# 98 C plus the 4 piece travel model)

Fine razor, and indeed I've seen it compared to the Parker 26c. Very reasonably priced.

The open comb side of the Ikon Shavecraft 101 is similar to the Parker and maybe a bit better. The rounding of the combs as both razors have make them very comfortable. The Fatip OC is similar and is all brass. If you buy the Fatip and put the Parker 26C cap on it  you have one of the best open comb razors imaginable. Less aggressive than the Fatip and more aggressive than just the 26C by itself. Rounded combs are a key to comfort in my opinion.

Im not sure but I think the Maggard V2 OC is an exact clone of the Parker 24/26C head.  Im sure you can find out by calling Maggard's; their service is excellent.

To clarify, the Maggard head is not SS but an inexpensive replacement for your damaged head.

I went ahead and bought the Maghard OC V2 and have to say I'm blown away by the quality of the shaves I'm getting. I've only had 4 shaves with it but it performs even better than the Parker 26c and I love the MR7 hande. It has the perfect dimensions and weight for me. I'm considering ordering another razor just in case anything happens to this one or they decide to discontinue for some reason.

I considered getting the ikon 101 but I just couldn't get myself to like the idea of the dual comb. Especially because people kept saying that the open and closed comb sides were not equally aggressive. 

Thanks for the input and suggestion though!!

The 101 is equally aggressive from comb to bar side in my experience.
