5 stars ⭐️ product was ship and received within the estimated delivery dates. The quality of the Thiers Issard Alum Block is the best. And Perfect for keeping a safe grip on my skin as I enjoy my morning ritual cut throat shave. And of course the thiers Issard alum blocks are amazing at helping to prevent razor burn and tightening the facial skin to prevent bleeding in case you are unfortunate enough to have nicked yourself during the classic straight razor shave.
This is a high quality block from France. If you’ve not used one before you need to. Big difference in closing your pores after an especially close shave. Expect it to last you for years if you keep it dry.
Agreed! As soon as I started carrying this one I shifted to using it. I love it.
