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 5⁄8 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.
Since ancient times olive wood has been appreciated for its fine properties and its beautiful colour. Olive trees grow all over the Mediterranean region and its wood is traditionally used for commodities as well as for decorative items.
