Our Thiers Issard Red Stamina Basic Set is designed for those who want just a straight razor and a razor strop. It includes a professionally honed Thiers Issard 6/8" Round Point straight razor set in Red Stamina scales and a Vintage Blades Brand Latigo razor strop with "D" rings. You have the option of upgrading to one of our 3" strops with "D" rings.
