Completely equal to its counterparts in its quality, it’s the perfect introduction to traditional wet shaving. All surfaces of the straight razor are precisely finished by hand in several stages.

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 1000 degrees Celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees Celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness.
PMMA, also known as acrylic glass, is a thermoplastic. A complex polishing process gives the material its unmistakable shine and underlines the high-quality appearance of the DOVO straight razors. You don't have to take special care of the material. Simply wipe off soap residue and dirt with a damp cloth.
During hollow grinding, the straight razor is ground concavely from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high torsional rigidity in longitudinal form. Enjoy the satisfying sound and feel of a gentle shave from the vibration of the razor blade trimming your facial hair.
The round point is the classic shape for a razor and is suitable in most shaving situations. This type of point has been very popular for centuries, as the curved shape can be used very safely in the areas of the ears, nose, and dimples. Even in the event of a fall, the rounded head protects you from injuries.
5/8 inch razors are true all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colors. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without great pressure. At the same time, it is still nimble enough to manage even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears, and chin.
