This razor is made of carbon steel with the material designation 1.2210, better known as silver steel. To achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees gives the blade elasticity and toughness.
Olive wood is a unique material of nature. It is harder than domestic oak or beech wood and at the same time shows a high resistance to mold. Even untreated olive is already characterized by above-average resistance to water, which of course makes it the perfect material for razors, shaving brushes and shavettes.
With hollow grinding, the razor is ground concave from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high torsional rigidity in longitudinal form. The blade dynamics ensures a smooth shave accompanied by a very characteristic sound, which is triggered by the swinging of the razor at the hair section.
In a razor with a classic degree head, the cutting edge ends directly at the front of the tip of the knife at a 90° angle. With a little practice, you can achieve formidable results both in the exact shaping of contours, as well as when shaving out dimples. Such a blade shape allows you absolute precision, but should only be used by experienced users.
