This quality DOVO straight razor features a 6/8" wide round point, double hollow ground blade made of high carbon steel and black plastic handles. DOVO Solingen straight razors are probably the finest razors for shaving in the world. They have a centuries old tradition of fine metal work and their processes for making straight razors is impeccable. The machinery they use is no longer made and so they have to keep producing these products "the old way." The profile of the blade has to be just right. If you remove too much material, it throws the whole grind off and the razor will never shave correctly. There are few craftsmen qualified to do the finish grinding on these blades and it is difficult for DOVO to keep up with the worldwide demand. In fact, they are no longer accepting orders even from us--and we've been selling their razors for over 20 years. Made in Solingen, Germany.

Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Excellent Starter Razor
This was my first straight, and gave me many great shaves. It's still in my rotation today. I would happily recommend this (or the 5/8 version) to anyone looking to get into straight razor shaving.

Dovo 6/8 razor
A few swipes on my new strop and the Dovo was ready to go to work. Gave a better shave than my old razor and I'm very satisfied.

Handle was bent, causing blade to hit it upon closing. Garbage.
