Un RUGBY modele 1961 (Japonais) acheté principalement pour l'utilisation d'un acier particulier 'PHOENIX'
"Rugby razors are made using Phoenix EVH steel from the world's top specialty steel maker, Austria's "Schoeller-Bleckmann". Because they are given careful heat treatment in the forge, hollow ground and polished to our country's highest standards, the cutting edge and durability are perfect. Rugby Razors are tempered one by one, and their cutting edge is fully inspected, so they are ready to use as is. However, from the second shave on, stropping on a top quality strop is necessary. For normal professional use, the 18mm No. 1961 hollow-ground razor is recommended; the 17mm [trans.note--this must be from edge to bottom of spine--I measured 20mm] half-hollow No. 1072 is best suited for those with particularly tough beards."
