Description

“Handmade in France”

Made by hand (and uniquely so), the Thiers-Issard brand is, in this one opinion, the most hollow ground and flexible razor left in production today.  They’ve produced straight razors for nearly 100 years in Thiers, France, with traditional methods confined to this most special of nations.

‘1196’ is the designation of the Evide Sonnant Extra, TI’s bread-and-butter model.   The “ESE” is supplied with a free basic black leather sheath/pouch.  Weight upon this variation is approximately fifty-one grams.  The white celluloid scales are actually quite robust and durable among the field of celluloid/resin alternatives in straight razor handles; one never hears of cracks from TI resin scales, which easily happen with other brands.

Furthermore, in shaving with straight razors the majority of my lifetime now and having owned and used hundreds, a basic no-frills late-1990s to early 2000s copy (only remember which apartment living when got it & dates of those leases) of this same ole ‘Evide Sonnant Extra’ razor is the finest shaving tool I’ve ever put to face, and when I got it new its bevel form was wavy as a funhouse mirror.   As Sam Cassell might possibly decree, never mind how I look, just gimme the damn rock.  While it isn’t a fancy looking TI among TIs, the Evide Sonnant Extra absolutely can shave you simply magically close.

“Shave Ready”?

If you elect for the factory edge, you’ll receive your razor exactly as its manufacturers intended…pretty simple!
