Re: Back to Thiers Issard

My T.I.'s are made with the "carbon song" steel with the exception of one which is vintage. The vintage sings, the carbon song blades while some are advertised as singing blades don't but are quite thin and stiff.

Re: Back to Thiers Issard

I always thought the main advantage of a hollow ground blade was ease of sharpening, less metal to remove than a wedge. I like "stiff" hollow ground blades.

Nice one pass shave today. Interesting knot. It's very soft and worked well for face lathering. I look forward to using this brush again.

Excellent shave this morning. I guess this is about as fancy as it needs to get (for me) for a great shave. Have a good one.

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

Yes, I believe the one I have is drilled with 63/64 drill bit and I set the knot to 50mm. I do have another mixed knot that I'm going to set soon that will be set in a 26mm hole and will set that around 53-55mm but I'll use silicone so I can remove it if I don't like it.

Re: Which straight razor did you use today?

The color is called black and yellow Damascus. I drilled an oversized hole and set it just deep enough so the ...
