Thiers-Issard 7-Day razor sets and special commissions - some illustrations and information.

specially commissioned by one of our clients - photos reproduced here with his kind
Simple, elegant and (in our opinion) , very cool.
The customer requested the days of the week to be in Italian and in a particular
font - looks great!
The set was supplied in the superb top-of-the-range burl elm box, again made by Thiers-Issard
- but fully custom boxes are available too!

Thiers-Issard are one of the few makers left in the world to produce the much sought-after
‘seven-day set’ - seven matched razors, usually with the days of the week engraved
on the spines and intended for use on a ‘one-a-day’ basis. These sets are, by their
nature, expensive to make but are a delight to own and are usually ranked as a family
At present Thiers-Issard are only offering the two sets below, but do ask if you
have something else in mind, we can certainly ask!
Please bear in mind that these sets are not off-the-shelf ‘stock’ and there is a
lengthy waiting list for them - the prices are shown but they are certainly not a
‘buy now’ item.
If you are interested in purchasing either set please contact us in the first instance
by using the form below, thanks!

in their display cases! - the owner of the above set has produced a short video that
shows him shaving using one of the razors pictured above. It’s included below with
