Description

Due to the popularity of the Le Grelot razors we have decided to stock a few more variants of these new razors under this historic brand recently revived by Thiers Issard.  In 1924 Pierre and Louis Thiers exhibited their razors in Algiers and were awarded a gold medal for excellence. The Medaille D’or mark celebrated this achievement. This particular razor has a satin finish to both sides of the blade which bears the Le Grelot Medaille D’Or mark, but this time the scales are made from blonde horn. The combination makes for a truly stunning razor.

The blade has a half hollowed grind, meaning the blade is slightly stiffer, thus making it a perfect choice for beginners and those with a more wiry or coarse beard growth. It has jimping to the lower side of the tang. Beautifully presented in a stylish retro cardboard box.

As with all natural materials, colouring of horn varies significantly from one razor to another.

SHAVE READY – Unlike some retailers, our razors are not supplied as they come from the factory. We individually prepare all the razors we sell. For full details see our policy.
