DOVO Special Tortoise 6/8
Steel: High Carbon Steel
Nose: Round Poin
This traditional, masculine design is one of DOVO's most popular models. The scales are crafted of very convincing imitation tortoise shell, inlaid with the DOVO logo in sterling silver. It is perfectly matched to its blade resulting in a precise balance. Better balance equals better control and a better 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, Full Hollow Ground, semi-finished blade. Its finishing is completed by adding file jimps to the upper and lower sides of the shank, brand-stamping the shank front and rear, and adding a 24k gold-etched brand to the front of the blade. Finally it gets its mirror polishing and sharpening.
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.
