Dovo straight razor 5/8" carbon | Apex ebony
The 5/8 inch DOVO 25 straight razor is the only square point razor in our product line. The straight razor stands out with its elegantly 24-carat gold-plated tang and ebony handle shells. In addition to its beauty, the straight razor offers you a fully hollow polished carbon steel blade that impresses with its sharpness and strength.
This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness. The ornaments are beautifully gold-plated with 24 karat gold.
Ebony is one of the most valuable woods on earth. It is extremely hard and heavy. Therefore, it is excellently suited for the production of a high-quality handle. Its structure enables the wood to keep its shape even in a damp environment and not to swell. Several sanding passes are necessary to create the silky soft surface.
During hollow grinding, the straight razor is ground concavely from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high torsional rigidity in longitudinal form. Enjoy the satisfying sound and feel of a gentle shave from the vibration of the razor blade trimming your facial hair.
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.
Straight razors in the 5/8 inch size are real all-rounders and can handle any task related to the classic wet shave with flying colours. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without much pressure. At the same time, it is still manoeuvrable enough to be able to manage more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears and chin.
