A truly distinctive full hollow ground straight razor, this gorgeous 5/8 Bergischer Lowe can be considered nothing short of a piece of artistry; it practically speaks for itself! The 5/8" blade, which doubles as a canvas for both a reverse gold etching and gold plating along the spine, is secured in a handle fashioned from genuine buffalo horn. The natural patterns of the horn ensure a one-of-a-kind finish, hand-polished to perfection by a member of the legendary Dovo family of craftsmen. This is a natural material which varies in the tone of the color. An excellent addition to any collection, or a wonderful gift for that special someone! This straight razor is a true masterpiece!
Keep in Mind: Horn Scales are always different and no two look alike, and since they are a natural material they can warp slightly depending on the moisture where you live. Horn scales are without question the most beautiful of the scales. We just want to warn you that they are always different and can look different from the example in the photo. But I can promise you they are high quality hand picked horns from Dovo.
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.
