New from Thiers Issard this 5/8 straight razor has been hand made using traditional methods going back to 1910. Le Grelot is a trade mark with much history, now owned 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. The scales are made from snakewood which as its name suggests has a distinctive mottled scale like pattern and gives this particular razor a uniquely interesting look. Unusually for TI it 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. Beautifully presented in a stylish retro cardboard box.
