Note: We are having problems sourcing Dovo Straight Razors, presently Dovo is behind by a year on orders so availability will be limited, we apologies for the delays but it is beyond our control. If you see a razor you are interested that is available, we highly recommend that you buy it when it is.
This Straight Razor is one of my personal Stainless Steel favourites! Like any other Straight 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 to show 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.
The Dovo "Inox" 5/8 Hollow ground Straight Razor with genuine olive wood handle. Made with Dovo's top grade surgical stainless steel, this high end DOVO razor achieves the highest degree of hardness and resistance to wear. So basically the edge will last longer than a Carbon Steel blade and will not rust as easily. On the other hand it will also take longer to hone and need more stropping time to bring it to that perfect edge. 24K gold wash on the blade face gives it that touch of class that is rare in Straight Razors today.
Note: 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.
