Thiers Issard registered “LE DANDY” trademark in the early 1900s. At that time, barbers served exclusively upper class clients dressed in "gentlemen” clothes - hence the name of this smart brand.
‘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!
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.
