Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Solid shaver, shave ready
I ordered this from KC, so as to have another straight to use in rotation. When it arrived, the "directions" from Thiers Issard suggested not even stropping it until it had been used at least 3 or 4 times. Although somewhat skeptical, I tried it and they weren't kidding. This is an excellent shaver, and really was shave ready. It's not gorgeous but does a very good job on my medium beard, and is part of my regular rotation with two Dovos. Like one of the other reviewers suggested, it would probably be a good starter straight razor, as it is more forgiving than a 5/8 full hollow ground. Vivre la France!
