    A buddy of mine just came back from France where he visited Thiers Issard and he told me some bad news: The company will be closing down at the end of this year due to stagnating sales caused by the economical crisis and technical problems they can't solve - more and more people are sending their razors back due to problems with the etching or the sharpness.

    It's so sad to see them go - if you planned on getting a TI razor, now would be the appropriate time :(

    TI won't close. They would only be bought out by Dovo.
