About Thiers Issard - Thiers-issard was founded by Pierre Thiers in 1884, its name stemming from his wife’s and his last name, to differentiate between other Thiers of the area. Pierre Thiers put so much of his heart into his business, rumor has it that he died at his work bench. The company passed down through successive generations until 1985, when the company transferred to Gilles Reynewaeter, a frenchman absolutely enamoured by straight razors who has written two books on the subject. The company now uses a proprietary Japanese steel blend mixed with 1800’s techniques to craft some of the best razors in the world.
