‘Singing’ Hollowed, or extra-hollowed, razors represent the finest grind and thinnest blades made by Thiers Issard. 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!
Traditional Damascus Steel is forged from at least two different alloys of steel. The layers are welded at red heat of the materials in thin layers. The Damascus Steel of this type is not suitable for straight razors as the weldseams make the material at the extremely fine cutting edge inhomogeneous.
Our razors use state of the art powder metallurgical Damasteel. Two types of high carbon steel powders are rippled together, pressed and sintered. With this method you receive a very fine structure of the material and a way higher share of carbide than in the traditional made steel.
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.
