‘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!

The Luxury Line from Thiers Issard includes additional processing of the electro-chemically etched side to an eye-catching mirror finish. The opposite side remains a beautiful satin finish.

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.

    Solid Razor

    This is the second razor I purchased (both TI’s) since starting with straight razors 5 months ago. The first is a 6/8. Like the 6/8, the 5/8 is very sharp, but the 5/8 is slightly less flexible, which is helpful for me as a beginner. The scales and the engraving are quite nice and the razor has a good feel in my hand. Aesthetics are very personal, but I suspect any user would not be disappointed with the quality of the grind of the blade. I highly recommend Grown Man Shaving for their customer service engagement, product quality and service when questions arise. A note on 5/8 versus 6/8: I noted earlier the feeling that the 5/8 is slightly less flexible, but that does not really impact the shave. What is noticeable is the wider blade does present some challenge on the tighter areas of the face such as the upper lip and chin. If you have an angular face or small areas to shave, the 5/8 is easier. If you are new to this, I suggest going smaller to start.
