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.

Lubricate the bearded area with lather from a good quality shaving soap or cream, for best results use a shaving brush.

For a close shave, we recommend that you shave twice with the grain and once against the grain.

We strongly recommend you watch some tutorial cut throat YouTube videos BEFORE your first shave.

You only need to apply minimal pressure, let the razor do the work.
