A Closer Look at the Parker 92R Safety Razor

I’ve had the Parker 92R DE Razor in the wet shaving arsenal for a little while.  According an article on Sharpologist titled: The Evolution Of Parker Razors the 92R was introduced in 2011 (it’s also appears to be one of Mantic’s favorites)

As I’ve mentioned in a number of previous posts, Crystal Razor Blades have become my go to blade.  They’re the ones I reach for when I use my 92R (and pretty much any safety razor for that matter).  I’ve tried a bunch of other blades: Feather Razor Blades, Shark Super Chrome, Derby Extra Super Stainless Blades, Merkur DE Blades, and Dreadnought Razor Blades but I’m partial to the Crystal blades.

The Parker 92R is a Twist-To-Open (or TTO)  with a black and chrome finish with a textured handle.  It measures about 4.25 inches from end to end and the handle measuring roughly 3.75 inches.  The 92R weighs 3.0 oz according to our scale.

To compare it to another popular Parker razor,  Parker 26C Open Comb measures 4 1/8 inches  from end to end with a handle that measures about 3.75 inches from the tip to the base of the razor head and this razor weighs in at 3.3 oz (on our scale)
