This quality DOVO straight razor features a 5/8" full 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.

Inferior handle
The steel and edge might be great, but it's waisted effort with the less than 3rd rate plastic handle. It broke from normal use within months. I regret buying this.

Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Cons: None
This is a great razor for a beginner. I bought this for my boyfriend and he loves it. It came highly recommended by the art of manliness website. I don't think it came sharpened... or my boyfriend made it dull the first time he used it. But now it is sharpened and he gets a closer shave then he ever has. Very happy with my purchase.

best price for first straight razor
This is the first Strait razor I have purchased it seems good to me, its good because don't have much money tied up in it. The first one I purchased broke but I had it replaced it because I had not been used it. I bought a Thiers-Issard replacement handle incase the handle brakes some how on my replacement. The replacement handle I bought does not have the center stop pin as the original on the one I purchased. I’ve used it about three times now and haven’t had any problems shaving, just getting over the fact it’s a sharp object close my face. I will have to start look into buying a strop and water stone so when it starts to dull.
