The handcrafted straight razor by Thiers Issard of France offers over 100 years of craftsmanship expertise. The high quality carbon steel, hollow ground blade is matched with a sleek stainless steel handle for a monotone metallic appearance. Due to the heavier weighting of the stainless steel handle, this straight razor best suited for a seasoned straight razor shaver.


Features:

  • Stainless Steel handle (scale)
  • 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 107 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
  • Stainless steel handle adds weight to the razor as well as wears well in a wet environment. There is no benefit to the weighting of the stainless steel other than customer preference.

STRAIGHT RAZORS CANNOT BE EXCHANGED OR RETURNED.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Blade; Heavy Handle First of all, lets understand that the stainless steel refers to the handle, not the blade. The blade is high carbon steel and consequently it suffers from all of the problems of such a steel (i.e., it rusts unless you oil and clean the blade after each use or store it in a dry location). Second, the blade is great - it is a Thiers Issard after all. Good shave. Third, the handle is heavy. I will disagree with one of the other reviewers. This is not a well-balance razor. With the heavy handle, it affects how you use the razor. Personally, I would rather have a heavy blade rather than a heavy handle (one of my favorite razors is the Le Grelot from Thiers Issard - this has a heavy blade). Would I buy this razor again? Probably. Is it my favor razor -- no - I like the other Thiers from this site as well as my Le Grelot and my Hart steel razors. If you need a durable handle, this is the razor. If you need a good razor that you can easily use, spend the extra and get the other Thiers on this site. Again, good blade but heavy handle. November 8, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Straight Razor, Excellent product I purchased my razor at the Dallas Galleria store. I am on active duty, so I shave every day, and had tired of spending $15 (on average) for a four pack of Fusion Pro-Glide razors that were gone within a month. I selected the stainless steel model over the others available because the handle seemed more durable, which made it less likely that it would break during my travels. I have been using for over two months now and the closeness and consistency of the shave is incredible. September 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! I have wanted a straight razor for years and recently received this one as a present. I have used it about a half dozen times now and it is absolutely fantastic. I do a fair amount of travelling, so the stainless steel handle on this razor will hopefully prove to be very durable. It has an excellent weight and balance which provides a lot of confidence when shaving. So far I am very satisfied and would highly recommend this product! May 31, 2011

You wont be disappointed with getting this razor. This makes shaving fun and not a chore. January 13, 2011
