Dovo was founded in 1906 in Solingen Germany by Mr Dorp and Mr Voos, who split their surnames to form the company name “Dovo”. In those early years, they produced only traditional straight razors like many other factories in Solingen at the time, with only 13 staff. Expanding later into scissors and grooming tools through the mid 20th century, their straight razor production went from 8000 per year to 3000 per month with the resurgence in wet shaving.
Today, Dovo is an empire of these “masterpieces in steel”. When James Bond Skyfall came out in 2012, Dovo wasn’t expecting the tsunami that came their way. The shaving scene using a Dovo razor inspired men the world over to shave like 007. Dovo sold a year's worth of stock in 3 months, and they knew they needed a plan. By focusing on their best styles, such as the Dovo Classic, Dovo Bismarck and Bergischer Lowe they were able to keep up.
