This paste can be applied to the fabric side of a strop to provide extra abrasiveness. You will find after a certain number of shaves that the standard strop routine doesn’t quite get the sharp edge you have come to expect from your razor. This paste will take off the tiniest amount of steel, allowing you to go for longer without having to hone your razor. 

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.
