Lightning Straight Razor - Restored and Shave Ready with Brass Inlay

Sorry, this item has sold.

This razor is striking to say the least.

Featuring beautiful triple-layer scales made of an outer layer of ziricote - a beautiful Central American hardwood - and an inner layer of yellowheart, with a thin layer of deep-crimson acrylic sandwiched between, this razor is as unique as it is useful. Incredibly detailed bolts of lightning - made of embedded brass - have been added to each side of this piece, and have been polished as smoothly as the handle itself.

A restored, vintage French-style blade was chosen to complement the incredible scales. While the blade has slight pitting from age, it has been restored to a near-mirror finish, and honed to a shave-ready state (meaning you don't need to sharpen it before use).

Tang features an original stamp of a stylized crown and the text: "C.H PARIS". Wedge is a quadruple-layer of brass and deep-crimson acrylic, and hardware is polished brass. Razor was finished with water-resistant teak oil.
