I am selling several vintage razors from a collector in Switzerland.
This is a Limited Edition Thiers Issard Silverwing in Ram's Horn. Only 300 were made. This is Nr 065.
The razor is in stellar condition as are the scales.
Razor has a high mirror polish.
6/8, French Point, 3/4 to Full Hollow.
Steel is TI's famous C135. (1.35% carbon)
Razor comes in a triple-lacquered walnut wood case, numbered and inlaid with commemorative silver wing emblem. Scales are genuine Ram's Horn.
Thiers-Issard was founded in 1884 by Pierre Thiers who was born in 1860 and died in 1929. Pierre Thiers had an extraordinay reputation for being a skillful blacksmith, his items-especially the hand razors were of very high quality. When he created his own company, he attached his wife's name in order to avoid confusions with the other Thiers families. Mrs Pierre Thiers ran the company and was soon helped by her son, Pierre Thiers (1884-1962), and a few years later by Louis (1910-1985) and Pierre Thiers (1914-1997). Philippe Thiers was the last successor who sold the factory to Gilles Reynewaeter in 1985.
The razor shaves hair from my forearm effortlesly and passes the hanging hair test but if in doubt you can always order a honing service and it will be re-honed.
