Size: 6/8 unopened

This is one of the finest straight razors that Dovo makes. The scales are crafted from the best Grenadille wood. Grenadille wood, also known as African Blackwood, is renowned for its beauty, hardness, resistance to moisture, and polishes to a brilliant, lustrous surface. The sculpted spine of this blade is a work of art and features a 'flowing' or 'wave' motif. 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, half-hollow ground blade. Blade is etched with Dovo 'master craftsman' and the words "Flowing - Hollow Ground - Carbon Steel - Handcrafted". The "Dovo" logo and "Solingen Germany" are on the front of the tang. Finally, the razor is sharpened and and polished by Dovo's factory tradespeople. Dovo claims the razor is shave-ready, although we recommend professional sharpening on all new Dovo blades. 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

      Clever and reliable service

      Classic Shaving has been a very reliable provider of straight razors, soaps, shaving balms and colognes. They originally had very affordable Dovo and Therries-Izarrd razors, but now tend to carry only the very high-end and beautiful American craftsmen made straight razors. The collections of soaps, beard and mustache products and other body care products are still the best I have found searching for shaving supplies any where on the web. I purchase from Classic Shaving at least 4 to 6 times a year and have always been very pleased.

      Thank you for choosing us! We are hoping to have more Dovo and Thiers Issard razors available in the future.

      Exceptional product for the price

      I have seen razors that were priced over $1,500.00 and they had been "used and abused." Nevermind that the person selling them had only razors for sale, when I asked him about strops he said to use an old belt.
