Dovo 5/8 Pearlex Straight Razor

This Dovo Straight Razor, featuring an amazing set of Pearlex scales, has a 5/8" forged high-carbon steel blade that is nothing short of pleasing to the eye! This Razor is one of my personal favourites from Dovo. The carbon steel blades boasted by these razors are incredibly easy to hone and maintain, compared to their stainless steel counterparts, and can expertly hold a very sharp smooth cutting edge.

Each Pearlex handle features a traditionally-style Dovo inlay, and a gorgeous 24k gold etching running across the blade.

Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil. This $25 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, only for them to open the box and realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it. Also included is a free follow up honing that can be used once your razor is in need of a fresh edge.

Please allow a minimum of at least 2-3 business days for us to prepare your Straight Razor, as this is not a product that you buy just anywhere. It needs special attention to detail as it will come in contact with your skin, and must be sanitized and polished before being coated with Renaissance Wax. This careful and considerate attention to each razor is the difference between a shaving store that will rush your razor out the next morning, and our own Artisan-owned shaving store that is nothing less than extreme when it comes to making their clients 100% satisfied. It's our job to ensure that your experience is perfect. We cannot thank you enough for visiting our website, and we hope you have a great day.

Note: When you receive the razor for the first time, carefully 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 shaves before needing to strop (depending on how aggressive your beard growth is. Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot tap water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. We recommend oiling your razor after every use. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.

I gave this razor as a birthday gift, it was the lowest online price and it’s beautiful. The customer service is truly outstanding. A big thank you for going out of your way.

Shave Ready!

I bought this razor as a set with the strop but noticed there was no review for just the razor, so I'll leave one.

This is my first straight and I'm waiting for my second (Bismarck) from Classic Edge. The Pearlex is a gorgeous razor. I bring in my double edge razors into work for coworkers to try. Managed to convert 5 so far away from cartridge razors. I brought in the Pearlex and it certainly generated interest. Everyone was terrified of it and were more interested in watching to see if I'd die by my own hand.

It has such a classic look and I can manage a BBS shave after only using it the times. I've used Proraso, Tabac and Stirling soaps with a preshave and the razor has performed excellent each time.

I also have a mole just above the jaw line and I haven't nicked it yet. So for those of you that may be worried about something like that, don't be. The honing guru at Classic Edge does a superb job that it has given me the confidence to shave a mole with a straight razor.

Just be mindful of angle and pressure and you'll do just fine! And if I manage to convert any to a straight razor, I'll tell them to buy from Classic Edge.
