Your straight razor is delivered shave-ready but covered with a thin layer of grease as protection against rusting. To remove this grease, simply plunge the razor into hot (not boiling) water and wipe it dry afterwards. Before each shave, wash your face with hot soapy water and plunge your blade into the same hot water. Your shave will be much improved as a result. Always dry your razor after use.
This straight razor has been thoroughly checked by the qualified workers and operators in the Thiers-Issard workshop. Thiers-Issard guarantee that this razor is free from stains, deep scratches or chips on the blade and handle. The razor blade has been oiled with Vaseline in order to prevent it from rusting. You should check the condition of your razor immediately the day you receive and unpack it. Please contact us right away should you notice any defect.
