Dovo - Facharbeit Straight Razor, Red Handle, 6/8"
Take a unique piece of shaving history in your hands: in 1967 these blades were commissioned, forged and honed with meticulousness and passion, but never picked up. They spent 50 years untouched in a factory storage room - until the emotional moment of rediscovery. In awe, our master grinders of today completed the legacy of their teachers. Now is your chance to acquire a timeless one-of-a-kind piece. The razors with stainless steel blades and straight point as well as engraved serial number are available in the two historic DOVO brand colors red and blue, each limited to 500 pieces.
A straight razor with a traditional square point, the cutting edge ends directly at the tip of the blade at a 90° angle. With a little practice, you can achieve formidable results both when precisely shaping contours and when shaving dimples. Such types of blades allow you to shave comfortably with absolute precision, but should only be handled by experienced users.
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.
