The Spécial-Coiffeur is located in the middle of the Thiers Issard line. It features the famous C135 carbon song steel. The blade has a satin finish and it has non-slip jimps on the bottom of the tang. The razor comes with a leather sleeve that is perfect for storage or travel.
Thiers Issard handmade razors are pieces of art. Not only are they a pleasure to look at, but they deliver a superior shave. Thiers Issard is one of the oldest remaining manufacturers of straight razors, and the old world craftsmanship and pride can definitely be seen and felt.
All straight razors we sell are fully shave ready. This razor was then given a JNat finish, on an Ozuku Mizu Asagi Lv 5++ stone (above 16,000 grit). We put straight razors through a water stone progression to 5,000 grit, followed by Botan, Tenjyou, Mejiro and Koma Asano-stamped Mikawa Shiro nagura, and finally the ultra-fine Tomo nagura on our JNat. JNats (Japanese natural stones) are known for the exceptionally comfortable shave they provide. It’s been fully stropped, sanitized with alcohol, coated with a thin film of Dovo paraffin oil, and is ready to shave as soon as you remove it from the package. Carefully wipe the oil from the blade with a tissue and it’s ready to use.
Important: Due to the risks associated with bloodborne pathogens, potential honing damage and scuffs and corrosion resulting from daily use, we cannot accept returns of new straight razors.
