* Carbon steel is far superior to rustproof steel as far as sharpness is concerned. The supposed disadvantage of rust susceptibility is offset by following the care instructions.
Care instructions: After shaving, clean the knife with pure water and dry thoroughly. If the razor is not used over a long period of time, it should be slightly oiled (e.g. Camellia Oil, No. 705280).
Since 1884, traditional French company Thiers Issard in Auvergne has been making exquisite razors for wet shaving. The blades are made almost exclusively from Carbonsong C135 steel* with an extremely high carbon content of 1.35 %. Due to this high carbon content and the extreme hardness of 64-65 HRC, they can be ground to a very thin edge, thus providing the necessary sharpness for a comfortable shave. For a better grip, the underside of the tang is serrated on all razors. Leather pouch included.
