French (or oblique) point. Its point profile resembles a quarter circle, but with a sharper angled curve, and while it ends in a similarly sharp point as the square point it lacks the abrupt straight line edge profile. The difference between these two is mainly aesthetic, although the French point may help to shave “difficult spots” such as under the nose.
The blade width size is 20 mm (6⁄8 in).The width of the blade is defined as the distance between the back of the blade and the cutting edge. It is expressed in units of eighth of an inch. A narrow blade can shave tight facial spots such as under the nose, but it must be rinsed more often.
The blade is made of stainless rust-resistant steel. Nevertheless, following the prescribed rules when sharpening the razor is essential. To avoid water spots or rust on the blade one should thoroughly dry the razor with a slight touch and an easy tapping on the towel. At the end of the shaving ritual store the knife in a well-aired room. Oil the blade if it is not going to be used for a longer period.
Grenadilla or African Blackwood has been used in Europe for 500 years. Initially it was used to manufacture musical instruments. It is one of the hardest woods worldwide and displays a particularly beautiful, dark brown to black grain. The high density and hardness of this natural material makes it perfect as a wet shaving accessory.
