I have received a Parker 89r for Christmas and have tried shaving with it.
I am finding im not getting any better a shave than when i use my Mach 3 razor i know I am doing something wrong because everyone on here says they far outweigh the plastic rubbish when it comes to shaving.
Im following the grain instead of against it.... not putting any force on the razor and holding it right at the base ( have read past posts ) i am using the blades that come with the razor ( Gillette 7oclock platinum's) could it just be a case of them not being right for me? I would really love to be able to use the razor to its full advantage because i know they are so much better than disposable head ones. Any help would be appreciated and P.S this forum is the best by far I have found while looking for info on wet shaving!
