Dovo Inox 5/8 Stainless Straight Razor Olivewood

This Inox 5/8" Hollow Ground straight razor from Dovo is one of my personal Stainless Steel favourites! Featuring a genuine olivewood handle and made from only top grade surgical stainless steel, this incredible straight razor achieves the highest degree of hardness and resistance to wear.

So basically, the edge will not only last longer than a Carbon Steel blade, but it will not rust as easily. Blades like this require an exceptional level of care to produce, and can take longer to hone and strop in order to bring it to that perfect edge. 

The expertly applied 24K gold wash running along the face of each blade gives these razors an elevated sense of style and class; an extra little touch that is rare in straight razors produced today. 

Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil. This $25 Value is our way of showing you that we are willing to take our Customer Service to the next level. After all, nothing is worse than buying a Straight Razor as a gift for a loved one, only for them to open the box and realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it. Also included is a free follow up honing that can be used once your razor is in need of a fresh edge.

Please allow a minimum of at least 2-3 business days for us to prepare your Straight Razor, as this is not a product that you buy just anywhere. It needs special attention to detail as it will come in contact with your skin, and must be sanitized and polished before being coated with Renaissance Wax. This careful and considerate attention to each razor is the difference between a shaving store that will rush your razor out the next morning, and our own Artisan-owned shaving store that is nothing less than extreme when it comes to making their clients 100% satisfied. It's our job to ensure that your experience is perfect. We cannot thank you enough for visiting our website, and we hope you have a great day.

Note: When you receive the razor for the first time, carefully take it out of the box and remove the oil with a piece of tissue. The razor has already been stropped and it completely "Shave Ready", so go ahead and shave! You will get 2 shaves before needing to strop (depending on how aggressive your beard growth is. Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot tap water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. We recommend to oil your razor after every use. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.

Customer review

The Dovo Inox Stainless Steel Olivewood razor is a beautifully crafted straight razor. While I am new to straight razor shaving, I have an appreciation for the craftsmanship that went into this blade. The wood grain scales give the razor its own unique personality and the quality of the blade provides for a high quality shave.

I was hesitant to spend a large sum on a razor, but I couldn't be happier with my purchase and the customer service is second to non.

Customer review

I bought this razor and several other products for my boyfriend for our anniversary & the razor is just as gorgeous as in the pictures. I can't speak from personal experience, but according to my boyfriend (who just switched to straight shaving with this razor), he says it gives him the best shave he has ever had.

Not to mention, the customer service is extraordinary! I ordered this item late (only a week before our anniversay), and I got an email the very next day away letting me know that although it usually takes 3-4 days to sharpen the razor/send it out, they'd try to rush it to get it to me in time for my anniversary. And wouldn't you know it, they sent it out the next day! I ended up getting the razor a day early, which is absolutely fantastic considering it needed to go through customs. I am touched that they went the extra mile to get my order here on time.

I am impressed with the quality of the products received but even more so with the quality of the customer service.

Customer review

Please take note that I am new to the world of wet shaving when reading my review, I am not very experienced but have gained plenty of knowledge.

This razor is everything I expected and more, the scales are beautiful and well constructed. The razor sits very well inside of the scales. I believe each scale must have it's own look since it uses the natural olivewood.

The steel itself is very good, I chose this over carbon steel because I am not ready to sharpen my own razor yet and I didn't want it to lose it's edge too fast! I am very happy with it and I recommend it too anyone who is looking for a great quality razor with beautiful wood scales!
