Dovo Forestal 5/8 Red Wood Straight Razor

Dovo Forestal 5/8 Red Wood Straight Razor

The 5/8 inch Forestal straight razor bears its name due to its exquisite details on the blade and back. In addition to its polished silk-matt redwood handle, the straight razor has a carbon blade that perfectly combines sharpness and thoroughness thanks to its round point and full hollow grind.


This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness. The ornaments are beautifully gold-plated with 24 karat gold.

Handle Material

Redwood is perfect for the production of a straight razor handle. This natural material is hard enough to keep its shape even in a humid environment, and it can be sanded and polished with great precision and accuracy. The silk-matte polished wood provides a unique play of eye-catching colours.

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? The Classic Edge is an Artisan owned shaving store. 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. 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 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 that 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!
