This pre-owned Thiers Issard 4/8 razor has a carbon steel mirror finished hollow ground blade, with no blade marking, a plain spine, thumb notch and jimping to the upper tang. This is an unusual size and shape for a Thiers Issard razor.

The razor is of  4/8 inches depth at its deepest part with a short blade length of around 60mm (2 1/4 inches) so I think it would be best used for detailing. It might also suit a lady who would like to use it for shaving body hair.

The scales are not standard TI scales but are made from cow bone in a rather rustic style which has been hand painted in a decorative gold and red design. The blade is sitting close to one side of the scales so a new owner may wish to adjust that, though I am not proposing to play around with it.

The razor has 3 or 4 tiny pock marks on the blade, which as been given a polish, and is otherwise in very good condition.

Supplied in a black calf leather pouch as shown.

SHAVE READY – all our razors  are individually prepared and supplied shave ready. For full details see our shave ready policy.
