This is it. When tasked with the challenge of crafting the most legendary straight razor ever made in the Dovo factory, their craftspeople rose to the challenge. The Dovo Mammut is clad in gold and scaled with two slices of 30-40,000-year-old Woolly Mammoth tusk. The 5/8” blade is a very standard size, and good to learn on as it is easy to maneuver while not so narrow that it gets lost in the hand. Swedish Carbon Steel makes of an amazing shaving edge that will last months at a time, and the mammoth tusk scales add extra heft that makes for smoother shaving.

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”.
