The 5/8 inch DOVO 41 is one of the few razors we manufacture from stainless steel. Of course, we grind this straight razor by hand in several stages and decorate the blade with 24-carat gold. The ribbed tang provides support for your fingers as they work the full hollow ground blade.

This straight razor is made of grade 1.4034 stainless steel. The metal shows good corrosion resistance against soaps, water, and steam and is therefore ideal for the production of high-quality and incredibly sharp blades. The modern metal alloy requires very little maintenance, is easy to clean and is particularly ideal for newcomers. The elegant details are gold-plated with 24 karat gold.
Ebony is one of the most valuable woods on earth. It is extremely hard and heavy. Therefore, it is perfect for the production of a high-quality handle. Its structure allows the wood to retain its shape even in humid environments and prevents swelling of the material. Several grind cycles are necessary to create the silky smooth surface.
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 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.
