The Basics

Shaving is the most masculine daily ritual, yet has become a chore for many.  Shaving with a straight razor changes a chore to a zen like meditative experience to be enjoyed when time permits.

This razor is timeless:

  • The bone scales (handle) and horn wedge are as popular now as they were 150 years ago. 
  • As a matter of fact, bone and horn are as popular now as they were many thousands of years ago!
  • In the same way that a round pen fits your hand better than a rectangular carpenter’s pencil, these scales have been rounded to optimize your experience.

More Info:

  • The blade was hand-made in Solingen Germany, where Dovo has been making straight razors since 1906.  Solingen, "The City of Blades", has been known for them since Medieval times.
  • The scales were hand-made by artistic craftsman in Nashville, TN with focus on quality, fit and finish.

 

Specifics about this product:

  • This new Dovo Prima blade is made from a type carbon steel called Silver Steel.  Silver Steel is known for attaining and keeping a very sharp edge. 
  • It is a full hollow 5/8 razor.

Notes about this specific item:

Blades are permanently attached with the scales by a process called 'pinning'.  This razor was put together with temporary fasteners, with the impact that we can change the blade if you want a different one.

Note that this blade has a full hollow grind.
