Straight razor head
French (or oblique) point. The blade of the French point is shaped like a quarter circle, which constantly gets sharper towards the end. That enables a very precise shave, as also “difficult spots”, such as under the nose, are easy to reach.
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 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 thoroughly dry. Blades, which have not been used for a long time, need to be treated with oil.
Grenadilla wood scales
Grenadilla wood: 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 predestines it as a wet shaving accessory.
