New to wet shaving? Or maybe you're curious about the injector razor craze? Try a Parker! They've been in the razor business since 1973, so they know a thing or two about design and quality. Here is what Parker says about their Adjustable Injector Razor:
"Parker's Adjustable Injector Razor is precision engineered to provide you with a smooth and irritation free shave. This single blade razor provides close and comfortable shaves with fewer ingrown hairs and razor bumps when compared to multi blade cartridge razors since it cuts the hair directly at the surface. With Parker's adjustable design, it's easy to customize your shave by simply turning the knob on the top of the razor. For the mildest shave, adjust the safety bar to a setting 1 which has a minimal blade gap. For a moderately aggressive shave, adjust to a setting 5 for the maximum blade gap (or try somewhere in between).
Injector razors have a blade loading system which is simple once you get the hang of it. You will be rewarded with a remarkably close and comfortable shave thanks to our single blade, adjustable design.

For the best shave experience, follow these basic tips:
- Prepare your skin for shaving – a great time to shave is after a hot shower.
- Use a quality shave soap or cream to lubricate and protect your skin from the blade, lessening irritation. Ideally, use a shave brush to lift the facial hair and more evenly dispense the lather.
- Let the razor do the work – apply little pressure when shaving with our injector razor, as the blades are quite sharp. Be mindful to take it slowly and use a shallow angle, such as 10-15 degrees. The top of the head should lay flat against your skin with this shallow angle. Shave with the grain for more sensitive skin types. If you’re looking for the closest shave, shave against the grain on your second pass, with a fresh lather applied for extra protection.
- The amount of time each blade will last varies from individual to individual, however the average is approximately 3-7+ uses out of each blade. Once shaving starts to feel rough and the blade drags over your skin, it is time to change the blade.
- Experiment with the razor until you achieve your most comfortable shave – enjoy the moment!
Instructions for Loading the Blade:
- The blade case/holder is called the “Injector” and the sliding tab on top is called the “Blade Loader”. The part that goes into the razor to load the blade is called the “Stem” or “Insert Key”.
- Hold the razor by the handle with the head up with one hand and insert the “insert key” into the razor’s slot opening on the rear of the razor head with your other hand as far as it will go using mild force.
- Slide the blade loader forward all the way to insert a new blade into the razor. At the same time, this will push the old blade out of the razor.
- Pull out the injector from the razor after you have inserted the new blade.
- Discard the old blade in the used blade section on the bottom of the blade case.
- Make sure that the new blade is centered and resting against the two small blade stops. If it is not, the razor will not work properly.
- Start shaving with the adjustment knob at a lower setting, using a shallow angle with minimal pressure.
- Once you get the hang of it, start experimenting with dialing different settings (#1 is the mildest suitable for more sensitive skin & #5 is the most aggressive, providing the closest shave). Find the level of aggression that works best for you for the most comfortable shave."
