    Just shaved with this razor for the first time, which was also my first straight razor shave. 1st pass with the Parker Shavette, and second pass with my Merkur DE razor. A few drops of blood later and I’m pretty satisfied with my performance. :-) Can’t wait for my beard to grow back so I can get some more practice!

    Nice review. After watching this video seems like a lot of effort to shave. I could have pooped showered then shaved in about 4 minutes. I embrace technology Mach 3.

    Thanks for taking the time to make these great videos! I am new to using a safety/straight razor and keep a very short shadow of a beard all around. I’m looking to regularly shave the upper cheek areas, areas under the bottom lip near the chin, and bottom of the neck (hopefully you get the idea). I wanted to know what you would recommend to get started with between safety, straight, or shavette like you have here. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. – cheers from Boston!

    Thanks Geo! Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to make these videos. I’ve picked up so much from your thorough and incredibly patient tutorials.

    what do you recommend for sensitive skin?

  7. TheOriginalStevenH says:

    Wow what a great product… I can get this to practice the angle of the straight razor and then switch to a more uniquely skilled straight razor. Thanks for the video this really opened my eyes.

    I like :)

    @dkoll72 This is actually the razor I use. I’ve only been doing this for a little over a month and basically wanted a “starter” razor in case I ended up chickening out and not sticking with it. Down the road I’m probably going to get a Feather, but overall once I got the hang of it I’ve had no problems with this razor.

  11. dkoll72 says:

    @harrowrudeboy lol yes… I got the hang of it now, I was using the wrong angle before it was my first time shaving with a straight edge.

    my girlfriend and my wife both came in and i had some explaining to do :P

  13. bilkal828 says:

    I just straight shaved for the first time last night. Conquered about 70% of the shave with my Parker SR1 and finished with my safety razor.

    Trouble spots: Chin, Under the nose, Adams apple. I have a very pronounced chin and Adams apple. Anyone have advice on maneuvering blade, or skin stretching techniques for those areas?

    Also, used Proraso soap and it seemed to dry out very quickly. Am I not using enough water, or too much soap?

    Thanks for all the posts Geo! You really inspired me to do

    I have been using one of these Parker’s for about two years. They are excellent! The razor itself is inexpensive, but well-made. I recall I paid about $15 for mine. Much better deal than the Dovo Shavette, which costs about $34. And the Parker is heavier with a much better feel in my hand. Works for me!

  15. harrowrudeboy says:

    @dkoll72 did you put a blade in it?

  16. machoandashley says:

    I fast forwarded thru your video initially and didnt catch your USMC shirt. However when you where shaving and said oblique i had a major final drill flashback, all i could think of was do i have to go right or left oblique,crap now im gonna get eaten by my senior and heavy,lol.
    Love the videos brother,im just learning this art and buying my first set of gear to get it all done. Ill be supporting your store and paying it a visit to get my stuff. Thank you for the time you invest in these videos.

    @geofatboy Not tried any yet. Purchased a couple of Parkers the other day with a selection of blades. Gave one to my dad for his b-day and the other is mine as soon as he makes up his mind which one he’d like! Thanks for all your tips.

  18. geofatboy says:

    If your beard is prepared properly, you may just need to work on achieving the proper angle.
    Start on the cheeks where it’s easiest.

  19. geofatboy says:

    No, haven’t gotten my hands on a Miraki yet….
    Do you prefer it to the Dovo and Parker model Shavettes?

  20. geofatboy says:

    So, how did it work out for you?

  21. geofatboy says:

    When learning anything new, persistence is key…
    Don’t give up after one try!
    The Reward is in having mastered it….
    You just need to work on the proper angles.

    Hey Geo,
    I shaved with this razor a few times and i was disappointed to see that it would not cut ANY of my whiskers even shaving against the grain. After seeing you shave with this i dont understand how you were able to do it. btw im not new to shaving i regularly shave with a slant bar with feather blades however i am new to shavette and/or straight razor shaving

  23. ldexterldesign says:

    @geofatboy Did you try the Miraki yet? How does it compare to the Feather and Parker? Cheers.

  24. kitasaunders says:

    After toying with the idea of buying a straight razor and wondering what to buy for a beginner, will i take to it, what if i cant master the stropping and honing ect ect and genrally doing my head in i decided to try the parker one you just used first as its a cheaper option and hopefully give me an insite into straight razor shaving.
    Great vid by the way mate and you make it look so easy Lol.
