       This handsome straight razor is perfect for beginner and seasoned wet-shaver alike. The scales are crafted from classic ebony and are well balanced to the blade, offering exceptional hand control and a comfortable shave. The blade begins as a forged high-carbon steel blank that is then tempered for hardness. Next a master craftsman shapes and grinds it into a 6/8 inch wide, full-hollow ground blade. In the finishing process, file jimps are added to the lower side of the shank. Shank is then brand-stamped with the Bismarck logo on the blade and "Solingen Germany" on the tang. Finally, the razor is sharpened and and polished by Dovo's factory tradespeople. The many generations of experience that went into the making of this razor are evident when you first hold it in your hand. It will provide the finest shave possible for many generations to come.

      Made in Solingen, Germany

      My first straight razor

      I just started using it. I think it will take some practice.

      "Bismark" Dovo 6/8 Straight Razor

      I wanted to wait a few weeks before writing a revew. First, I had the straight razor honed by classic shaving and to let anyone new know, it's very sharp. Second, I had to get used to the 6/8 as I've been using a 5/8, the adjustment cased a few nicks but it comes with the territory. Lastly I can say, after stopping a few times and becoming familiar with the weight and angles of this razor it shaves well. No razor burn and it is forgiving yet will let you know if you're not doing something right. I would consider another "Bismark" for my collection in the near future.

      Dovo Bismarck review

      I shave with a straight razor every morning,and have recently acquired the Bismarck and i am very impressed with it, like all Dovos setting up a good bevel is a pain if you don't know what your doing, lots of false positives when the edge goes right off you know your close to getting there, it digs into my wide strop a bit perfect for my 2 1/2 inch ,just not used to shoulder-less straights this first one for me have acquired 3x more shoulder-less. Shaves like a dream and looks fine prefer without the gold, wonderful razor. Forget the shave ready sales pitch the bevel has to be set up correctly.
