Pierre Thiers held an exhibition in Alger in April 1921. On his stand, he exhibited all his beautiful handmade razors. He won the first prize: 2 gold medals. So proud of this when he returned back To France, he created a new mark the "Medaille d'Or exposition Alger 1921" in remembrance of his award.

The original mark was usually stamped with the 2 medals in gold, which was so logical! In 1984, the stamp Medaille d'Or Alger was found but a major detail has been missed, the 2 gold parts on the medals on the straight razor were black. Now honoring a proud heritage the golden mark or "d'Or" is back in its full honor with the intended gold parts on the medals.

The change was is so logical and befitting!

This is the most beautiful mark of Thiers Issard! and its creation was thanks to the skilled Pierre Thiers Founder. The Thiers Issard 'Medaille d'Or Alger 1921' Pakawood Straight Razor razor features additional processing of both sides to an eye-catching mirror finish featuring a beautiful pattern on the back of the steel with an extra Holllowed Carbon blade steel blade.

‘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 'Le Dandy' 6/8"

    Great razor! Good quality workmanship and assembly. The razor is sharpened, you can shave right out of the box. Very good customer service. I will use this store. Thanks a lot.

    Straight out of the box

    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.
