You have to love the look of this one! Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by us. We do this because the standard factory edge is not sharp enough to shave with out of the box. This $30 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 and when they open the box to realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it.
Dovo All Stainless Steel Straight Razor makes an amazing addition to your rotation. The Scales are brushed Stainless Steel and the Blade is also Dovo's famous Inox, which holds an edge longer. With all Stainless razors, it takes a little more effort to make the Edge "Shave Ready" when Honing, but once the bevel is set, it will hold longer than a Carbon Steel Razor. 5/8 is the perfect shaver for hard to reach areas and it is easy to shave with. This Blade and scales together make for a heavier razor so keep this in mind.
Note: When you receive the razor for the first time take it out of the box and remove the oil with a piece of tissue, the razor has already been stropped and it is completely "Shave Ready", so go ahead and shave. You will get 2 - 3 shaves before needing to strop. Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. If you intend to leave your razor unused for several days, oil the blade using mineral oil to protect the surface from moisture and humidity. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.
