The Horn Straight Razor handcrafted by Thiers Issard of France offers over 100 years of craftsmanship expertise. The high quality carbon steel blade delivers a clean, close cut. While the Bovine* Horn handle offers a one of a kind luxury scale. The Thiers Issard Horn Straight Razor is an excellent blade for beginners and experts alike.


Features:

  • Natural Bovine* Horn handle (scale) sourced in Zambia**
  • Double edged, Round Nose blade
  • 5/8 Carbon Steel, hollow ground blade imprinted with The Art of Shaving logo
  • 7.87 L x 2.36 W x 1.06 H and weighs approximately 89 grams

Benefits:

  • 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
  • Unique Bovine Horn handle will have variations to the finish, shape and color due to being naturally sourced. Each handle is one of a kind.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not as Advertised This razor was purchased for me the other day. It was advertised as "shave ready". Upon receiving the razor and an attempted shave, it became obvious it was not sharp. I went against recommendations and stropped the razor, it was no different afterwards. After talking with customer service, I was told there was nothing they can do because the edge "varies from razor to razor" and to try stropping it. So that means one of these razors was shave ready, and they labeled the rest as such. If you're interested in this, or any razor from Art of Shaving, expect to send it to a professional to have it honed for an extra $25 as soon as you get it. December 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful razor...however get it honed! This straight razor (SR) is absolutely gorgeous and weighs nicely in the hand. The tang and the tail are nicely sized for larger fingers to have enough space and not feel crowded. The bone handle has it's own character. However, there's one problem. Given the cost of this SR and it being one of their more luxurious SRs, you would hope that this razor would be hand sharpened...it is not. The factory sharpening of the Theirs-Issard is not enough to give you a comfortable shave (no cuts or tugging). Highly recommend this razor receive a professional honing before use. Don't quite understand why TAOS doesn't provide this service with the purchase of a straight razor??? October 4, 2011
