Dovo Barbarossa 5/8 Black Chrome Short Blade with Red & Black Acrylic Handle
The DOVO Barbarossa 5/8" has been distinctly designed for the needs of barbers and bearded men. The highlighted feature of this razor is its short blade; allowing it to be especially maneuverable, and allowing it optimal precision and control; thus the user can shape and contour his beard with not only ease, but millimeter accuracy.
The fine engraving of the famous bearded Emperor Barbarossa has been added to the fully hollow-ground carbon steel blade, giving this razor a beautiful flair, while the incredible red and black acrylic handle gives this model an impact like no other.
This particular razor is Black Chromed to prevent oxidation, making it the perfect razor for those who don't always want to take the time to oil their razor. Yet keep in mind that there is exposed metal at the edge. We also recommend that you hone this razor with a layer of tape on the spine to prevent excess hone wear, and to prevent the chrome coating from coming off.
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.
