Quantity: In Stock

Handmade in France using the finest Sheffield Carbon Steel, this stunning Cut Throat Razor combines perfect form with perfect function.

Looked after and maintained properly this razor will provide you with decades of daily use.

Etch washed with black acid onto the face of the razor are the words 'Le Dandy'. The tang is stamped with the Thiers-Issard Crown logo and the words 'Thiers-Issard Made In France'.

These razors leave the workshop in a 'shave ready' condition. However the cutting edge of the razor (the fin) may bend over ever so slightly. Stropping will right the fin. This razor should not need honed for at least 9 months if stropped properly. We recommend you watch some YouTube tutorial videos before your strop this razor.
To prevent corrosion, after use, you must dry the razor thoroughly and store in a dry environment. The razor will benefit from a light application of razor oil if it's going to be stored for more than a few days between use.

Happy with this, just as I am with my Thiers Issard Le brown leather hand strop.
Both well made and at a good price.

My "Le Dandy" arrived a couple of weeks ago and I have enjoyed using it. It was pretty much shave ready straight out of the box. It cuts very smoothly and is easy to control. Definitely artisan made. I can smell the maker's cigarette smoke on the scales!
