Dovo Bismarck 6/8 Faux Mother Of Pearl Straight Razor

The Bismarck is, without question, one of the best razors available today; and it certainly isn't too hard on the eyes! With it's faux Mother of Pearl Scales and its beautiful Gold-Plated blade, it looks almost as nice as it shaves! The blade is produced from top-quality, Swedish carbon-steel and is a little larger than your average starter razor, yet it remains well balanced and easy to strop. Like any Carbon Steel razor, it also holds a mean edge. 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". The satin finish blade also features gold plating of the entire spine, shank and tang.

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.

Amazing straight razor. Very well honed by thanks. Thanks a lot for the honing service btw. It shave super smoothly like a sharp knife going through butter.

This is a great razor, I bought an older model with a wooden handle (scales)which I like better than the new version which is plastic. It holds an edge very well and once it is properly honed it does not take much to keep it sharp with a little stropping. Besides that, it just looks good.

This is my first purchase of a new straight razor. I have a used one originally from Phil at Classic Edge and it shaves great. This new Dovo Bismarck is a beauty to look at and a dream in your hand shaving. The feel and weight is perfect and the master hone by Phil, I can't compare as its flawless and such a smooth shave even with course grey whiskers. This thumb cutout adds a great feel to the razor in handling and doing the fine touches around nose and chin. Phil was kind enough to explain to me straights a year ago when I bought a DE from him. Now I understand his passion and dedication to them. I will definitely buy another from him and use his honing service. Keep doing what you are doing Phil, you are a master at it. Thank you!
