This Straight Razor is handcrafted by Thiers-Issard, a prestigious French razor maker since 1884. The carbon steel blade is hollow ground to deliver a more comfortable shave and provide the sharpest edge.


  • Black acrylic handle
  • Double edged, Round Nose blade
  • 5/8" Carbon Steel, hollow ground blade imprinted with The Art of Shaving logo


  • Hollow ground blade allows for a sharp, thin blade edge in turn producing a clean, close cut of the beard hair. Double edge allows for use on both sides of the blade.
  • Carbon Steel blade is pliable, yet durable enabling the edge of the blade to be maintained more easily versus the much more rigid stainless steel.
  • Black acrylic handle wears well in a wet environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This is my first straight razor and it is wonderful. I am still learning how to use it properly, but I can tell a difference already. Closest, smoothest shave I have ever had, and it keeps getting better the more I get used to it. December 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Gift I recieved this as a gift and couldn't have been more excited. A beautiful razor and an incredible shave. It compliments my shave kit so well. Really the most perfect gift ever. February 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shave with little irritation I am new to the straight razor group but have seen an incredible decrease in skin irritation after shaving. Over the past two months my technique has improved dramatically. This was a great razor to begin with and I highly recommend it. I am definitely done buying disposable razors. April 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thiers-Issard Straightedge I had been using a Dovo turtleshell and an ancestor's blade made in the late 1800's. Both shave pretty good. The Dovo, while giving a good shave, took more strokes to get there. The TI razor I got from here only needs one pass in each direction for me and results in a super-comfortable result. I think this is because the blade is noticeably heavier than is the Dovo. So, I would definitely recommend the TI over a Dovo. How I do it: 1. Hot shower 2. Art of Shaving oil 3. Art of Shaving Cream. Just a small dab right in the middle of your brush is all that is needed 4. Shave with the grain 5. Rinse with hot water 6. Re-do Steps 2-4, except shave against the grain 7. Rinse with cold. Remarkably comfortable. Great razor. Take your time learning how to shave with these. Well worth the effort and heck, it isn't costing a blade a week like a fusion does.
