About as classic as it gets, this ram's horn adorned blade is the epitome of the classic style and elegance Thiers Issard is known for. Perfectly mid-sized, it is easily wielded in any size of hand and makes a beautiful heirloom piece to pass down to future generations.
This razor is made from high carbon steel, capable of amazing sharpness and great edge retention but requires a little extra care. Be sure to dry your razor well after every use, and oil with Blade Oil or store in a dry place.
All straight razors must be stropped before use to straighten burrs and polish the edge for the smoothest shave possible. Be sure to use agood quality stropand accurate technique.
Honing/ Sharpening should be done on Japanese synthetic or natural whetstones. You can bring your blade into the Kent of Inglewood store to be honed, with the first time free on any blades purchased from us. Razor honing classes are also available at your nearest Kent of Inglewood location.
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 workbench. The company passed down through successive generations until 1985 when the company transferred to Gilles Reynewaeter, a Frenchman absolutely enamored 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 world's best razors.
