Dovo Bismarck 6/8 Pakkawood Straight Razor

Here we have the illustrious Dovo 6/8 Bismarck Straight Razor, one of our personal favorites in terms of modern straight razors. Because of their popularity, they almost sell faster than we can get them, so when available we recommend you don't wait and buy them when you can! Out of the hundreds we have sold, not ONE client has anything but amazing things to say about these beautiful straight razors, but what makes them even better is the flawless edge that we put on them. You will not get a sharper razor anywhere!

The blade is produced from top-quality Swedish carbon-steel! It achieves the highest degree of hardness, elasticity and resistance to wear. The blade depth is 6/8" and it is full hollow ground. The blade is inlaid with an attractive 24K gold emblem reading "Bismarck - Best German Hollow Ground", while the mirror finish blade features gold plating along the entire spine, shank and tang. It has beautiful Pakkawood scales with the famous "Solingen" name inside.

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.

Beautiful, Sharp AF, what more do you want

The razor as a whole is beautiful, and feels nice in the hand. When I received this razor, I was astounded by how sharp it was. It was quite possibly the sharpest blade I've ever encountered. It's clear that these people put alot of care into their work! Quite refreshing to deal with a company that is motivated not only by profit, but also a passion for their work!

Another perfect shave

I bought the Pearlex and strop combo. After using that a few times I had to get the only other straight razor that caught my eye while doing my initial research. Never tried a straight razor before the Pearlex and I think it was only a month apart until I ordered the Bismarck.

The Biz, seems to me, to shave a little more efficient. I love both razors and would recommend either razor honestly.

I have a mole on my masking and have no problem shaving it so if anyone is worried about that, it's nothing to be concerned with. Just keep in mind the angle and pressure and you'll be fine.

Happy shaving, this one's a winner! Thanks to all at classic edge! You're the best!!

Customer review

The Dovo Bismarck was my very first "real" straight razor purchase. Classic Edge had the lowest price... no brainer. I was attracted to the beautiful gold etching, and the 6/8th's inch blade. Phil honed this razor perfectly. I experienced no tugging or pulling at all. Shaving is fun again.

I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Thank you Phil and Jane!
