About Dovo: Dating back to 1906, founded by Herren Dorp and Voos, Dovo’s roots began as a straight razor manufacturer in the city of Solingen, Germany. 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 resurgence in wet shaving. In 1996 Dovo acquired Merkur to round out their offerings to include safety razors, providing discerning folk with all manner of “meisterwerke en stahl”, or “masterpieces in steel”.

KEY INFORMATION

  • All razors are guaranteed shave-ready by our staff.
  • For help using your razor, we suggest you take a Straight Razor Shaving Class at one of our stores, or feel free to contact us for advice.
  • This razor is made from high carbon steel, which is capable of amazing sharpness and great edge retention but requires a little extra care. Be sure to dry your razor well after every use, and oil with Tsubaki Oil or store in a dry place.
  • All straight razors must be stropped before use, to straighten burrs and polish the edge for the smoothest shave possible. Be sure to use a good quality strop and accurate technique.
  • Honing/ Sharpening should be done on Japanese synthetic or natural whetstones. You can bring your blade in to a Kent of Inglewood store to be honed, with the first time free on any blades purchased from us. Razor honing classes are also available at your nearest Kent of Inglewood location. 

About Dovo - 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 resurgence in wet shaving. In 1996 Dovo acquired Merkur to round out their offerings to include safety razors, providing discerning folk with all manner of “meisterwerke en stahl”, or “masterpieces in steel”.
