As far as straight razors - cut throat razors go, this is just about as good as it gets.
Lovingly engineered in France by artisan crafts people.
Made from Sheffield Silver Steel with Olivewood Scales, beautifully finished throughout - an absolute joy to use and own.
This razor is sure to become a collector's piece in the future.
Please note: due to the differences in the grain of the wood used for the scales, each razor is unique.
The large, wide blade is 7/8 wide, it's made from Sheffield C135 'Singing' Steel, fully hollowed with a mirror polish and real 24k gold etch wash.
The etch wash illustrates the heads of a wolf and a sheep with text of 'Sheffield Best Silver Steel Guaranteed'. The tang is stamped 'Thiers-Issard Made In France'.
The 100% natural Olivewood scales have been expertly polished to a high sheen.
As the scales are made from natural wood, expect differences in the colour and grain of each scale.
Comes complete with a Thiers-Issard branded leather razor pouch.
Unusually, this razor is square pointed and not round pointed.
