    Default butterfly open

    After getting my Edwin Jagger de89, I am liking how the butterfly de look. Anyone have suggestions or advice on what to look for? I liked this one. Parker 22R Long Handle Gunmetal Butterfly Open Safety Razor | Maggard Razors - Straight Razor Restoration, Custom Scales and Wet Shaving Products

    For a TTO (turn to open) razor that is not too aggressive a Gillette Super Speed is hard to beat. If you come across an English Gillette 58 at a reasonable price snap it it up, smoothest shaving DE TTO razor I have used. Like my Gillette Fat Boys also and being adjustable they can be tuned to your level of competence with your shaving technique. As you get better at shaving you can dial the aggressiveness up to match.

    A Timor TTO for a mild shave and a Parker 99r or 92r for a more aggressive one. Both are very affordable and well built.

    I'm a big fan of the Parker 99r. All the Parker turn to open razorz have the same head and similar weight so pick the one you think is the best looking.

    Thanks everyone. I just ordered the parker 22R. I can see this is going to become an addiction lol.

    I had one of those Parker razors a while ago. It worked really well. I think it was more aggressive than the Superspeed. Let us know how it works out for you.

    Found this Gillette Slim Adjustable at a lawn sale for $8 a few months ago and love it. Great shaves with Astra blades @5

    iz858,

    I think every shaver should have one of the 'classic' vintage TTO Gillette DE razors : true classics, and they shave very nicely

    Have fun

    Best regards

    Russ
