‘Singing’ Hollowed or extra-hollowed, Thiers Issard's "Historic" 188 Zebra straight razor represents the finest grind and thinnest blades made in France. This nickname comes from the sound the blade makes when a softer material is dragged gently across the cutting edge - like making your water glass sing!
The Thiers Issard "Historic" 188 7/8" straight razor features Ebony scales with hand-filed spine highlights adjoining a Carbon Steel blade with an eye-catching mirror finish with the hallmark of the Zebra created by Pierre Thiers in the early 1900s. This wild Zebra symbolizes courage, force, and harmony with nations and countries. The mark of the Zebra honors the relationship Pierre Theirs shared with many clients within Africa.
Thiers Issard was founded in 1884 by Pierre Thiers, a skillful blacksmith known for exceptional handheld blades. The family business continued through Pierre’s wife and sons well into the 20th century, and the handmade blades are still produced in central France today. Thiers Issard stands by their product, offering repair, resharpening, and renovation of their products. This, and all Thiers Issard blades, will certainly stand the test of time.

Love my new razor! Could have easily shaved straight out of the box with it because it clipped the hairs off my arm holding it just above my skin. However, as my routine, I stropped about 50 passes and got to it.
Been close to three weeks now and other than daily stropping I have not yet had to re-hone the blade. And it’s a great pleasure to hold.
