The DOVO Gentleman in 5/8 "is an artful homage to those who are still gentlemen today. Of course, it impresses above all with its special gentleman laser engraving on the blade. The yew wood handle is extremely hard and tough which makes it particularly resistant to moisture.
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 800 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness.
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!
