    Many thanks to @riverrun for letting me have a go with this strange little travel razor.
    Normally when trying out a new razor I have a few preconceptions, not always right, but on this occasion I had no ideas at all.
    It's actually a very good shaver once you remember to lock your wrist.
    Two passes led to a DFS, I look forward to becoming better acquainted with the Bigelow-Parkin.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    This really is a very good little razor. If they were more readily available I'd be first in the queue.

    RR Old Type-Barbaros handle/Chinese Wilkinson (3). Heavy handle juices the mild head nicely. [​IMG]

    The super slick Vitos lather brought out the very best from the Bigelow-Parkin.
    This is more than just a gimmick, it's a very good razor.

    My penultimate shave with this wonderful little razor, I've been trying to string it out as long as possible but unfortunately I have to pass it on.
