If you are looking for an artisan made, shave ready cut throat razor this is the razor for you.
This Parker razor has a 6/8ths (19mm) wide blade making it ideal for beginners and experienced cut throat razor users. Made in the USA, one individual was responsible for hand grinding, sharpening and assembling this razor. Parker say 'In the spirit of American cottage industry, every part of a Parker straight razor is created and assembled in the USA., from start to finish, by an individual craftsman'. The scales are made from real Red Oak wood and the razor comes to you in a wooden box made from real Cherrywood.

Blade width: 6/8ths of an inch (19mm)
Square point nose with hand carved file jimps on the inside edge of the tang for added control and safety while shaving.
*Each blade is surface ground before and after heat-treating. These razors are guaranteed to be    straight for ease of stropping and honing.
*Heat treated in a molten salt bath. The salt protects the blades from decarburization and oxidation.
*Frozen in liquid nitrogen. The deep freezing assures dimensional stability.
*Triple tempered for a final hardness of 62-63 HRC.
*Finish honed on a vintage Escher hone and hand stropped. Every blade is 'shave-ready' right out of the box.
Each razor comes complete with a real Cherrywood Parker branded presentation box and a anti-moisture cotton sheath.

With great care, this razor is surgically sharp. We strongly recommend that you watch a few YouTube tutorial videos on how to shave with a cut throat razor before your maiden shave.
Keep this razor well away from children and psychopaths!

This is an awesome razor, great value for money too considering the pedigree of the brand and razor. This razor was not churned out on a Chinese conveyor belt, instead it was lovingly crafted by an artisan razor maker in the USA. A great razor for newbies and experienced traditional wet shavers, ideal as a gift as it comes in a wooden presentation box. You will need to buy a strop to maintain the razors edge. Consider buying a Parker handmade, USA strop.

Blade material: 0-1 Tool Steel (silver steel) with silk / matte finish
Scales: Real Red Oak wood
Presentation Box: Real Cherrywood
