DOVO 6/8 "Flowing" Straight Razor, Grenadille Scales
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.
