Pierre Thiers held an exhibition in Alger in April 1921. On his stand, he exhibited all his beautiful handmade razors. He won the first prize: 2 gold medals. So proud of this when he returned back To France, he created a new mark the "Medaille d'Or exposition Alger 1921" in remembrance of his award.
The original mark was usually stamped with the 2 medals in gold, which was so logical! In 1984, the stamp Medaille d'Or Alger was found but a major detail has been missed, the 2 gold parts on the medals on the straight razor were black. Now honoring a proud heritage the golden mark or "d'Or" is back in its full honor with the intended gold parts on the medals.
The change was is so logical and befitting!
This is the most beautiful mark of Thiers Issard! and its creation was thanks to the skilled Pierre Thiers Founder. The Thiers Issard 'Medaille d'Or Alger 1921' Pakawood Straight Razor razor features additional processing of both sides to an eye-catching mirror finish featuring a beautiful pattern on the back of the steel with an extra Holllowed Carbon blade steel blade.
‘Singing’ Hollowed, or extra-hollowed, razors represent the finest grind and thinnest blades made by Thiers Issard. This nickname comes from the sound the blade makes when a softer material is dragged gently across the cutting edge - like making your water glass sing!
