Handmade by the master craftsmen of Thiers-Issard, France This 'Le Chasseur Seven Day Set' harks back to a time when a gentleman would use a different razor to shave with on each day of the week.
A day of the week is engraved on the spine of each blade for easy identification.
This set was handmade in France and represents the absolute pinnacle of razor manufacturing. The presentation box is handmade, it's made from Burr Elm Wood and it's polished to a high shine finish, the box features brass hinges and clasp.
‘Le Chasseur’ translates to 'The Hunter' and this set features a different hunting scene highlighted in Snakewood which is inlaid (not printed) into the Box Wood scales of each razor:
Sunday: Rifleman, dog and ducks in flight
Monday: Three boar running
Tuesday: Setter dog and two ducks in flight
Wednesday: Rifleman, dog and boar
Thursday: Three bears
Friday: Three deer
Saturday: Three ducks in flight
Each razor blade is 5/8ths in size, and benefits from 24k gold plating on the face of the blade. The Tang is stamped Thiers-Issard, Made in France along with the famous Thiers-Issard crown logo.
The engraving and gold plating is incredibly intricate and detailed craftsmanship of the highest quality. This is a real heirloom piece that can be passed down the generations.
