7 Day Sets
Thiers-Issard are one of the few makers left in the world to produce the much sought-after ‘seven-day set’; seven matched razors, usually with the days of the week engraved on the spines and intended for use on a ‘one-a-day’ basis. These sets are, by their nature, expensive to make but are a delight to own and are usually ranked as a family heirloom.
At present Thiers-Issard are mainly offering the two sets below. The first is the ‘Bijou de France’ set decorated with ‘Bijou de France’ in gold on the blade, with blonde horn scales and with seven different hand-cut blade spines engraved with the days of the week. The photograph shows this set in a Thiers-Issard “Superbox”.
The second set is a great choice for any sporting enthusiast, the blades being decorated with the ‘Le Chasseur’ motif and goldwork. The scales, which are of boxwood with snakewood inlays, show seven different hunting/nature scenes, one for each day of the week. The photograph shows the set presented in the Thiers-Issard ‘Luxelm’ Elm burl and Beech box.
The razors in both sets are 5/8 razors in C-135 Carbonsong steel. While only these blades are used, we may be able to obtain a set with different scales and/or with different marking.
The spines may be engraved with the days of the week in your choice of language. There are seven spine choices and so your set could comprise one of each design or all with the same choice.

These sets are not held in stock but are specially manufactured to order. Typically the lead time will be 3-4 months.
If you are interested in purchasing a set please email us in the first instance.
All sets are supplied as standard with a Baragnia leather razor roll for seven razors in brown or black. These cases are ideal if planning to travel with the razors.
Alternatively it is possible instead to have the sets supplied in a display box, either the Thiers-Issard “Superbox” (solid top) or the Thiers-Issard “Luxelm” Elm burl and Beech box (glass top).
Below are pictures of the Bijou de France set in a Superbox and the Le Chasseur set in a Luxelm presentation box.
Please contact us for pricing.
Any of the ‘Le Chasseur’ razors referred to above can be supplied singly to order, without spine engraving, making them a really relevant gift for the hunter or outdoorsman. They would be supplied in an Italian Baragnia leather wallet, ideal for use when travelling or camping. If you would like to order one of these razors please keep in mind the lengthy lead times, some few months, in order to avoid disappointment.
