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 steel, which is resistant to rust, but can be more difficult to hone. To avoid water spots or rust the blade must always be thoroughly dried and the knives should be stored airy. Blades, which have not been used for a long time, need to be treated with oil.
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.
