Dovo straight razor 5/8" carbon | Special Acrylic glass tortoise shell

The DOVO SPECIAL 1516 simply certainly shows off its retro charm. With its golden decorated blade and its handle crafted of tortoiseshell imitation, it has become a classic in our product line over the decades. With the DOVO SPECIAL, you’re selecting a 5/8 inch, hand-ground straight razor with a full hollow grind. Standing proudly through the generations, enjoy the same classic your grandfather chose!


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 800 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.


Expensive tortoiseshell has been used since ancient times to make exquisite art and furniture. This rare material was highly sought after to decorate royal courts around the world. For our product line, we want to do our part to protect these majestic, endangered turtles. We work exclusively with an imitation of silk-matte polished acrylic glass.


With the hollow grind, the razor is ground concave from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high longitudinal torsional rigidity. The blade dynamics ensure a smooth shave accompanied by a very characteristic sound, which is triggered by the swinging of the razor at the hair section.


The round head is the classic shape of a straight razor and will fit most shaving situations. This blade design has been popular for centuries, as the bulbous shape is very safe to use around the ears, nose and dimples. Also, in the event of a fall, the round head protects you from injury.


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.
