Great entry level razor from the German masters at Dovo!

This straight razor is produced by Dovo of Solingen, the finest manufacturer of straight razors in the world. An attractive black celluloid handle holds a high quality hollow ground carbon steel 5/8 blade.

Please note: As with all of our open razors, whilst this razor is factory honed and deemed “shave ready” by the manufacturer, that’s not to say it can’t be made sharper by getting it honed professionally which is down to personal preference.

  1. Mr David Cunniffe

    The Dovo ‘Best Quality’ Straight Razor is a manufactured from high quality carbon steel that will hold an edge for months providing it is properly stropped and care for. The 5/8′ blade is hollow ground and is a perfect starter razor but requires skill and plenty of practice to master, just take your time. The razor I received, supplied by others, was not shave ready and required honing before use.
    Please note; the scales are plastic and not strongest so be careful, don’t over open or they will bred, and the blade will rust if not properly dried after use. If you are not going to use it for a while, suggest coating blade with light mineral oil.

  2. Mr Darren Venables

    After getting great advice bought this razor to start me off. Very comfortable to use and the price is right for a good starter level razor. Thanks for your help Darren.
