Dovo - Inox Stainless Steel Straight Razor, Olive Handle, Round Point 5/8"
This DOVO 5/8 inch knife is one of the few straight razors we make from stainless steel. Of course, we sharpen this razor by hand in several stages and decorate the blade with 24-carat gold. The fluted tang provides support for your fingers as they gently glide the hollow-ground blade over your face.
The round head is the classic shape of a straight razor and will suit most shaving situations. This type of blade has been very popular for centuries, as the bulbous shape can be used very safely in the area of the ears, nose and dimples. Even in the event of an emergency, the round head protects you from injury.
Straight razors in the size 5/8 inch are real all-rounders and can pass any task around the classic wet shave with flying colors. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide smoothly over your skin without much pressure. At the same time, it is still manoeuvrable enough to be able to handle even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears and chin with agility.
Your shave begins with pulling the knife on a strap. After you have generously smeared your face with shaving cream or shaving oil, grab the knife so that the open handle is facing away from you. With your free hand, you stretch your facial skin to form a surface that is as straight as possible. Place the knife at an angle of about 30° and gently scrape it over your beard. First with the stroke, then across and finally against the direction of growth.
Most straight razors are made of carbon steel. To prevent staining on it, rinse your knife with warm water after shaving. Now pat it dry with a cloth without touching the cutting edge and store it open in a dry place. There should be at least 48 hours between two applications, so that the stressed cutting burr can straighten up again on its own. If you don't use your knife for a long time, brush it with an acid-free care oil.
