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 ornaments are beautifully gold-plated with 24 karat gold.
Whether as a piece of furniture inlay or jewellery - mother-of-pearl has been used for centuries for the luxurious finishing of high-quality products. For ethical reasons, we work solely with a mother-of-pearl imitation made of acrylic glass. Through selected manufacturing processes, we are able to imitate the iridescent colour play of real mother-of-pearl and simultaneously combine it with the long-lasting properties of acrylic.
