This razor looks like a $300 razor for almost half the price! 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 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 and realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it.
This Dovo Straight Razor with pearlex scales has a 5/8" forged high carbon steel blade that is definitely pleasing to the eye! This Razor is one of my favourite Dovos! Carbon steel blades are usually favoured as they are easier to hone and maintain than their stainless steel counterparts and can hold a very sharp smooth cutting edge. The pearlex handle features an old style Dovo inlay and the blade is etched with a nice 24k gold decoration. Straight razors require some experience to use and maintain but once you have developed a good technique you will be rewarded with quality shaves!
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.
