    Vendor Description

    Still manufactured in Thiers France, Thiers Issard has been manufacturing fine razors for over 100 years. Today, their razors combine classic craftsmanship with modern design resulting in razors that look as great as they perform.

    This impressive 7/8 razor features a hand filed spine in the historic "Points" pattern. The fully mirror polished 135 Carbonsong steel full hollow ground blade includes a detailed two-tone etch, round nose and lower jimping. The razor scales are made from gorgeous black ebony wood. Each Thiers Issard razor includes a high quality soft leather storage sheath in tan, like shown.

    In our experience, Thiers Issard razors usually come well honed right from the factory, possibly ready for shaving. As such, we will ship these razors with the factory edge for those clients who would choose to use the factory edge or hone themselves.

    Condition: hair moistened, tip out/root in

    HHT-0 - shave: The hair can be shaved immediately at the holding point. This is strictly spoken not a true HHT, but it does tell us that the edge is capable of shaving. [all other attempts must be made at least half an inch from the holding point]

    HHT-1 - violin : The hair doesn't cut, but it "plays violin" with the edge. This is due to the shingles catching the edge, but it's not sharp enough to penetrate. On a full hollow razor, a faint ringing sound can be heard. On all razors it can be felt with the fingertips that hold the hair.

    HHT-2 - split: When it is dragged across the edge, the edge catches the hair and splits it lengthwise.

    HHT-3 - catch&pop: When it is dragged across the edge a bit, the edge catches the hair and pops it. The severed part will jump away.

    HHT-4 - pop: The hair is popped immediately when it touches the edge. It still jumps away.

    HHT-5 - silent slicer: The hair falls silently as soon as it touches the edge.
