This 6/8 inch Dovo straight razor is nicknamed "Bergischer Löwe" and belongs to the best of the best. With its Spanish point, the finely worked blade is elegantly gold-plated and paired with a handsomely crafted ebony wood handle. As a tribute to our home region and its history, the lion adorns each of the hand-made straight razors as a heraldic animal. For optimal and effortless control of the straight razor, it has a thumb notch.
Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "SHAVE READY" by us. We do this because the standard factory edge is not sharp enough to shave with out of the box. This $35 Value is our way to show 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 and when they open the box to realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it.
Note: Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. If you intend to leave your razor unused for several days, oil the blade using mineral oil to protect the surface from moisture and humidity. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.
