Dovo Best Quality 5/8 Straight Razor and Strop Set
Dovo's Best Quality 5/8 Straight Razor is not only a great starter blade, but one of the most affordable and all-around good quality straight razors out there. Full Hollow Ground and made with Swedish Steel, this is without question an excellent choice for those new to the shaving world, or anyone just looking for an incredible straight razor experience.
NOTE: This razor can be customized to a square point by Phil
With any good quality razor, a strop is needed to maintain your edge, so we have included our NEW 3" Wide Corium Board Strop which is easily the best choice for your first strop as it is simple yet VERY effective way to strop your straight razor. By using a board strop, it helps to take the learning curve out of stropping. Everyone cuts or nicks their first strop when learning, which is why we recommend a less expensive option the first time through. Keep in mind that less expensive doesn't mean less quality. Made with the smoothest leather available with amazing feedback and it's the same high quality leather "The Professional" is made from.
COMPLIMENTARY GIFT: A very important addition to this set is the Travel Straight Razor Oil or Paraffin Oil, which should be used after every shave to protect your Carbon Steel Razor. Just a couple of drops per side is enough to cover the entire blade and tang. Remember to oil the pivot pin once a month to stop oxidation before it happens.
As a small family run business, we take great pride not only in our Customer Service but our Craftsmanship. What sets us apart from other shaving stores? Other vendors state that their razors are "Shave Ready" when in fact they are not. We professionally sharpen each razor with a progression of 3K to 12K followed by extremely low Micron abrasives like Iron Oxide, Chromium Oxide and Diamond. Imagine that you ask the store if they use Chromium Oxide and they answer "What is that?". Time to look elsewhere! Also included is a FREE follow up honing, now this is NOT a gimmick to sell razors...This is our way to get you to continue to use your razor, because if you continue to use your razor there is the future possibility that you will make purchases from us again. It's a mutual friendship and our job is to help you on your journey to becoming an experienced Straight Razor Shaver. Also remember our "No questions asked" return policy. At The Classic Edge you are what counts, because without you there would be no Classic Edge! Straight Razor orders are special compared to other orders, which is why we ask that you wait at least an extra 2 - 3 days for us to prepare your razor. This is not something you want rushed, as there are many more steps involved in making sure your razor is not only "Crazy Sharp" but also 100% Bacteria FREE! Would you rather buy from a store that ships out the same day and get a razor that was not sanitized and sharpened? Nothing is worse than receiving a Straight Razor as a gift and then finding out that you have to send it away to be sharpened for $30 plus shipping! We cannot thank you enough for visiting our online store and hope you have a wonderful day!
