    Default question about TI Spartacus

    Has anyone used one of these razors and how do they shave? I ask because I didnt see any reviews on the Spartacus

    I've got one with that blade and bone scales from that vendor. Great shaving and beautiful razor. I picked up another virtually identical razor, also with bone scales, used, for half the price. The older one has the notched point, same etch, and a slightly different worked back. It is also the older TI silver steel and also a great shaver. Full disclosure, I love TI razors. Some guys don't like them.

    There's some fairly trustworthy praise for it here. Steve has always been good to deal with in my experience so I don't doubt the plaudits.

    Default TI Spartacus

    Hello, Dllandry:

    I have the Thiers-Issard Spartacus with the white bone scales, purchased from The Invisible Edge in the UK (Thiers-Issard, UK). Steve Dempster chose a perfect one. It's a magnificent razor in every way. I love it.

    Regards,
    Obie

    Outside of some of their scale QC in the new ones I don't think I have ever heard someone complain about any of their blades. I have several TI's and though some were a bear to hone initally, they all shave great once you get them dialed in. I had some inital issues with the original Silver Wing but the more I work on it the better it gets.
    Why I'm so good with a pistol I could kill a crow on the wing. Did the crow have a pistol? Was he shooting back? I will be.

    Honed quite a few TI's. Never had a bad one, I think their grinds are bit stiffer than most which I like.
