Some of you may remember an old post from 2007 where I revealed my preference for shaving with a straight razor. Well I've always had a hard time finding a nice blade online, that is, until now. I just came across the Thiers Issard Historic 6/8"-7/8" Le Canadien razor with a Snakewood handle and I am positively drooling. Sure the price tag of $315 is a little staggering but this is a once in a life-time investment.
The Thiers Issard series of straight razors is available from http://www.rasagepoulin.com which is entirely family owned and operated and also sports a decent environmental policy. Kudos!
