The 6/8 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.

A wide blade is particularly suitable for men with strong beard growth or thicker hair. A 6/8 inch straight razor glides undeterred through even the thickest facial hair. The experienced barber appreciates the high weight of the blade and the resulting smooth operating performance. Especially on straight facial areas, you will achieve an unrivalled thorough and comfortable shave.

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. 

Dimensions: 16.5 cm x 2.6 cm x 1.2 cm.

Dovo Straight Razors come with a factory edge that is guaranteed for 2 years. Made in Solingen, Germany

Worth the money

Received my order within 4 days of placing it. The blade was shave ready, I stropped it and shaved immediately. Have been using it for a month with no issues. Had a great experience!

Quality blade; my first real razor. Not crazy about the handle, but I don’t shave with that part.

Can't get it sharp enough to shave with

Bought and tried three whetstones and two strops, and watched many how-to videos on UTube. Still can't get it sharp enough. It would be nice if the New England Shave offered resources on how to sharpen, and had a phone number customers could call. The razor is useless to me.
