This beauty came today, Thiers Issard 7/8 Dreadnought in Blue Box elder burl after i placed the order with The Invisible edge, this is my first TI and i must say i'm very impressed with the finish and quality of the razor, and also the super service by the invisible edge, the blade as a mirror finish, with the most beautiful grain and colours running through the scales, after sometime going back and forth to look at the razor i just had to go back once more and get it, well i'm so pleased i did now for the photo's.

Boy, that's a beauty! One thing I love about TI razors are the pointed scales at both ends.

Thank you for your kind comments, the only thing now is i will have to stabilize a piece of blue box elder burr and have Bill of le Tuft brushes make me a new brush.

Jamie, I keep returning to this thread to stare... But I'm going to have to stop, as I'm concerned that all the drooling is going to ruin my keyboard! Babeando

I now how you feel Ben, that's what i've been doing for the last few weeks, going back to the Invisible edge web site to take a look, in the end I had to buy it.

I purchased a couple of TI Le Grelot with the stabilised wood last year. One in green and one red, but they are not nearly as vibrant or striking as your blue Dreadnought.

Below are the website pics (I'll have to take some of my own soon)...

Very nice, being a Carpenter by trade, i'm a sucker for a nice piece of wood.
