This little razor from Dovo is the perfect detailer. The short blade is ideal for getting under noses, trimming up beards, or taming wily eyebrows. While the 3/8" blade is a little small for most folks doing a full shave, it'll be your new best friend if you prefer a light, nimble razor.
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 into 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 a 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”.
