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.

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.

Excellent straight razor - Hone B4 using
I honed it and stropped it and shaves excellent. It will not come fully shave ready from the factory, but a little time on a hone(s), which you can buy here, will get it shave ready in no time. I suggest honing at the 4,000 grit level with tape on the spine to protect it and then moving up to 8000 grit and 12,000 grit. Swaty Barber Hones and some Japanese hones are excellent to finish the razor with.
