"1937 Special Coiffeur" TI razor

Came in fast, easy to hone, shaved with it, a very smooth shaver at a very good price. Worth more than what I paid for!

Great blade

I am new to the straight razor. This one was not my first choice, because I felt like there were good blades for less money. Most of those were sold out on about every site out there. Well, why not get one of the best brands of razor, and just piece together your own starter kit? The Knife Center seemed to have the best deal at the time. Now I know it is important to have your blade shave ready. One of the reviews said they bought this blade from here and all they had to do is strop it. At first, I wasn't sure what I was doing. My few shaves were not great. I learned to strop better. I learned to do the hanging hair test, and stropped again if not good. I developed my angle. Once more comfortable, I would do a second pass with different directions...much closer and smoother results. At first my cheeks would shave smooth, and later, I could get better at shaving my neck and chin. I am pleased with this purchase!

Thiers-Issard Straight Razor "Special Coiffeur" 5/8" Blade

The product is what I ordered and was shipped promptly. This is my first straight razor. My initial impression is very favorable. After normal stropping, it was shave-ready. The balance is good.

The Jaguar Razor

It's a fine razor that holds an edge very well, but this isn't the Coiffeur of the past from TI. This is a Jaguar blank likely ground by TI. It's a bit wider than 5/8 a lot closer to 6/8. Additionally, the grind is a bit more hollow than the old Coiffeur. A very nice razor, but don't expect the predecessor to the super gnome.

I bought this blade. It came shave ready BUT the blade is actually bent/uneven. Obviously this company has zero quality control. I guess I'll keep shaving with it till it pulls then toss it in the trash since I can't sharpen a bent blade
