Monk FactsThis handsome storage and presentation box is made from burled elmwood. Elm is known for its interlocking grain, which stops it from splitting but also gives it a beautiful appearance when polished. Straight razors, because they are made of carbon steel, should be kept away from moisture and a box such as this is an elegant way to keep your razor in perfect condition. The small town of Thiers, France has been a knife maker’s hub for countless generations. Pierre Thiers founded Thiers Issard in 1887, using his wife’s name to differentiate the company from the many ‘Thiers’ families in the town. Pierre was renowned as the greatest maker of razors in France, as well as a master blacksmith and cutler. These days Thiers Issard still make some of the finest French chef’s knives, but they are one of only two or three companies that still make high quality straight razors. The Thiers Issard razors are forged and then hand ground to order and only the purest carbon steel is used.
