I bought a Parker shavette a few months ago and after the first shave, I was hooked. I was getting BBS shaves with even less effort than when I use my slim adjustable. I have read the shavette style razors are very unforgiving and that I was in for a long learning curve. Well, after the first shave with my Parker, I was astounded at how simple it all was. No cuts, no weepers, and absolutely no irritation whatsoever. It just required that I use a very light touch.
Now when I use my dovo, I can honesty say that I am more afraid of cutting myself with it than I ever was with the Parker. I think I may blame it on the increased blade length and the slight bit of tugging I get around my neck with the dovo. Oh, and the dovo was recently honed by a honemeister on SRP so it shaves very well. But to be honest, I could use the Parker everyday for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy with the results. Even after about 10 shaves with it, it still produces some of my best shaves I've had in months.
Anyone else have good luck with shavettes early on?
