Some of my favorite shavers are my Thierrs Issard blades however that said and while I have 5 plus the regular silverwing and a few LeGrelots I have not always found there quality control on the rest of the razor to be where it should especially for the price and reputation of there blades. As I am sure most you have seen TI now has new forgings available at only 2 sites I know
of one being where I got mine from rasagepoulin.com,
well gents I am happy to report it appears at least from my perspective and from what I read on forums that TI has heard our complaints and addressed them. The fit and finish on the 2 below are perfect, the blades are centered and straight the pins are tight, there was a light coat of oil on the blades and the bevel was set-even and they were what I would say after shaving with them to be extremely damm close to if not being shave ready certainly plenty sharp enough but could be a little smoother nothing just a few laps on chromium oxide won't improve, all in all a big step forward from my past TI's.
If you are looking to get a TI or other shaving supplies definitely check out Scott at Rasage Poulin, of note the prices on his site are Canadian but if purchasing from the US when you check out with paypal you will see the difference which was pretty good at my time of purchase, also orders over $150 Canadian get free shipping and I believe he posted a discount coupon here on B&B the other day in the shopping forum. He is very good at answering any product questions via e-mail as well.
The first is a 6/8-7/8" in Snakewood with worked spine, the 2nd is called the Celebration Silverwing it is limited to 300 units a 5/8" French nose in Rams horn.
