DOVO "Micarta" SS 5/8 - White
Steel: Stainless Steel
This is DOVO's most popular razor. The razor's handle is elegantly simple proving that less really is more. The White Micarta scale exhibits it's own distinctive swirled grain pattern which is revealed after shaping and polishing. The scales are separated by a gold plated end spacer which adds just enough brightness to compliment the understated handles. The razor's blade is the star of this show. It is made of Surgical Quality Stainless Steel that has been forged into a blank and then Ice Tempered. Next the blade takes shape in the hands of a Master Craftsman who shapes and grinds the forged blank into a semi-finished 5/8 Full Hollow Ground blade. The blade's finishing includes: Gold Filled Brand Stamping on the Shank front and rear; File Jimps on the underside of the shank; Polishing to a mirror finish front and rear; 24k Gold Etched Branding on blade front; Gold etched Swirl Pattern to match the handles grain covering the entire blade shank and tang; Etched decorative pattern on blade's back; and then final sharpening and polishing. The overall effect is striking! Every bit of the many generations of experience that went into this razor's making is immediately evident when you hold it in your hand. And rest assured - It will provide the finest shave possible for many generations to come.
FACTORY EDGE razors are razors that have been honed by the manufacturer. Razor makers finish the blade and the blade is often shave ready, though some gents prefer to put a finer edge yet on their own razor. Factory edge razors are a good choice for the gentleman who is experienced with straight razors and knows how to sharpen and strop their blade.
