This beautiful straight razor is handmade by Thiers-Issard, artisan razor makers in France.
The blade is 5/8 wide and is forged from 100% fully hollowed Sheffield carbon steel 'C135'. The razor has anti-slip machine-tooled serrations on the bottom and top of the tang and the tang is marked 'Thiers Issard Made in France' with the Thiers Issard crown logo.
The 5/8ths Eagle blade is gold plated with the words "Hollow Ground" and "Fully Warranted" along with an eagle motif.
As the scales are made from real, natural snakewood, no two are alike due to the grain and colour of each particular piece.
Snakewood is native to South American coastal regions. It's a hardwood and so-called for its characteristic snakeskin pattern. Snakewood is a rare and small tree and it is one of the most expensive woods in the world.
Blade Material: Sheffield Carbon Steel
Blade Dimensions: 5/8'' Round Nose
Handle Material: Snake Wood
the razor comes in a Thiers-Issard branded leather razor pouch.
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.
This is an absolutely stunning razor from Thiers-Issard.
Perfect for regular use or as a collector's item.
Carbon steel and real snake wood.
