This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness.
The exclusive handle combines tradition with modernity. The sustainable SwissWood beech wood from Switzerland is brought to an incredibly high hardness through an innovative compaction process, so that the wood defies the adversities of water, soap and is thus in no way inferior to the longevity of the blade.
