The 5/8 inch DOVO 3 straight razor is nicknamed "Bergischer Löwe" and belongs to the best of the best. With its Spanish point, the finely worked blade is elegantly gold-plated and paired with a handsomely crafted handle. As a tribute to our home region and its history, the lion adorns each of the hand-made straight razors as a heraldic animal. For maximum grip, the underside of the tang is ribbed.

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. The ornaments are beautifully gold-plated with 24 karat gold.
African cow horn is a particularly elegant material and is therefore ideally suited for forming the handle of the BERGISCHE LÖWEN. Each handle has an individual grain and distinct colour pattern. The African horn is shaped in an elaborate process to create this stylish handle. Finally, the unique piece is finely polished several times.
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 Spanish point is an elaborately designed shape for razor points. Its unique shape comes from its concave form with a slightly rounded tip. This rounding also facilitates the shaving of complicated areas around the ears, nose, and dimples. Such a design offers you high precision without having to sacrifice security and control.
5/8 inch razors are truel all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colours. 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.
