The "Le Grelot" blanks were created by a competitor of Thiers Issard which stopped producing straight razors in the early 1980's. The blanks were made for companies such as Jaguar razors, Zenit - Royal Canada and the Widerstrahl (for Solingen). Thiers Issard acquired a limited volume of these finely-crafted blanks to create a new style of TI razor. The result was an elegant but simple straight edge razor with all the French charm and sophistication associated with the world-renowned Thiers-Issard name, including their signature 3/4 to full-hollow grind on the blade.
The polished Snakewood scales turn this razor into a true work of art, refined and without comparison in the blade marketplace.
