These razors are the prefect project razor for someone looking to craft their own scales. It comes with no scales and will require honing before use.
The Dovo Classic is the first straight razor of many a student and young individuals making their way into the world of wet shaving. The 5/8” blade is a very standard size, and good to learn on as it is easy to manoeuvre while not so narrow that it gets lost in the hand. Swedish Carbon Steel makes an amazing shaving edge that will last months at a time, while plastic scales are unaffected by moisture.
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”.
