The classic barber's notch Eagle blade is gold plated with the words "Hollow Ground" and "Fully Warranted" along with an eagle motif. As the scales are made from real, natural snakewood, no two are alike due to the grain and colour of each particular piece.
Each razor is presented in a Thiers Issard branded leather razor pouch. Snakewood is native to South American coastal regions. It's a hard wood and so called for its characteristic snakeskin pattern.Snakewood is a rare and small tree and it is one of the most expensive woods in the world. These razors leave the workshop in a'shave ready' condition. However the cutting edge of the razor (the fin) may bend over ever so slightly. Stropping will right the fin. This razor should not need honed for at least 9 months if stropped properly. We recommend you watch some YouTube tutorial videos before your strop this razor. To prevent corrosion, after use, you must dry the razor thoroughly and store in a dry environment.
The razor will benefit from a light application of razor oil if it's going to be stored for more than a few days between use.
