The 5/8 inch DOVO 100 is an excellent straight razor for beginners and people who prefer a robust and straightforward blade. Completely equal to its counterparts in its quality, it’s the perfect introduction to traditional wet shaving. All surfaces of the straight razor are precisely finished by hand in several stages. The top and bottom of the tang are ribbed, so you always have it firmly under control even with wet or foamy fingers.

The round point is the classic shape for a razor and is suitable in most shaving situations. This type of point has been very popular for centuries, as the curved shape can be used very safely in the areas of the ears, nose, and dimples. Even in the event of a fall, the rounded head protects you from injuries.

5/8 inch razors are truel all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colours. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without great pressure. At the same time, it is still nimble enough to manage even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears, and chin.

Your shaving begins with stropping on a leather strop. After you have generously coated your face with shaving lather or shaving oil, grab the blade so that the open handle points away from you. With your free hand, gently hold your skin to form as straight a surface as possible. You set the blade at about 30° angle and smoothly pull it down over your face. First, start going with the hair, and then finish by going against the growth direction.

Most straight razors are made of carbon steel. To avoid stains, rinse your blade with warm water after shaving. Next, dab it dry with a cloth without touching the cutting edge and stow it open to dry completely. Between two applications there should be at least 48 hours so that the burr can realign itself. If you are not going to use your razor for a longer period of time, apply a bit of acid-free oil to it. 

Dovo Straight Razors come with a factory edge that is guaranteed for 2 years. 

Dimensions: 15.9 cm x 2.3 cm x 1.1 cm.

Light and easy

I wanted to try one of the newer razors from the 21st century to contrast it against my vintage pieces, and also wanted a blade that I could travel with that wasn’t so precious that I had to worry about it. This 5/8 round point was at a price point that allowed me to jump in readily. Before shaving I took it gently to my 8K, and 12k-15k stones, then put it on a linen strop with 1.5um, 1.0um and finally a .05um paste, cleaning between each, then after a few laps on a leather strop I took it to the barberia. This little razor hummed right through with ease. It’s a much lighter blade in general for me. I usually use 6/8 and 7/8s, so it was an entirely novel feeling. Instead of my beloved and masterful classics, it felt like a new little sports car that zoomed across my face with a nice little resonance that was also new to me — and for just around $100, this was a perfect piece to add to my rota, and will be my new travel razor. I’m looking at some other Dovo’s that are on the upper end now. It’s a whole new era in shaving for me.

5/8" hollow ground Dovo classic straight razor

I have been wanting to try a straight razor for a long time now. I finally bought this one for myself, as a late Christmas present. I was nervous once I recieved my razor, that I'd end up cutting myself. I finally got the nerve up to use it, after watching several tutorial videos. The razor performed flawlessly. It gave me a nice clean, close shave. The razor is high quality. It's made in a region that is heralded, for some of the best steel in the world. I'm fairly certain that this razor will last the rest of my life, with the proper care, and maintenance. Very, very satisfied, and am quite certain you will be too. If you choose to buy this razor.

Worthless on Tough Beards

I went through all steps, used pre-shave cream and beard oil, stropped the blade to make it very razor sharp, shaved numerous times using various blade angles, and it was a waste of time and effort.
