Dovo Diamant Straight Razor 5/8″
For an authentic wet-shave, no method can really beat the original cut-throat approach. A straight razor will allow the blade to get closer the skin than any other variety – and thus it’ll ensure the closest, most comfortable shave possible. If you’ve yet to master the art, you’ll find it’s well worth the effort. And if you have, then you’ll know that you need the right tools. Fortunately, we’ve several such devices in stock, courtesy of our friends at Dovo – a German firm who’ve been producing high- quality grooming equipment for decades.
Here, you’ll find one of their signature straight razors. The Dovo Diamant Straight Razor blade is made from gloss-black oxidised carbon steel. Paired with a suitable leather razor strop, it’ll slice through even the most stubborn facial hair with ease – and it’ll do so for years on end. With a 5/8” round point, this Dovo Diamant Straight Razor blade offers precisely the right balance between hardness and elasticity. It’ll glide across every contour of your face, slicing each hair right at the root. It even comes presented in a blue metal gift box.
To get the best from this Dovo Diamant Straight Razor blade, you’ll want to regularly strop it, and pair it with a high quality shaving soap and shaving brush. Once you’ve experienced the quality which Dovo blades can deliver, you won’t want to go back.
The Dovo razor comes honed and stropped ready to use. The ready honed straight razor blade will be fine for a good few shaves, however it will need stropping at some point to polish the cutting edge. Many people who purchase these items also purchase a MUHLE Razor Strop or the MUHLE Strop Tool.
You may also want to keep your new razor in a Dovo Z Stand which has been specifically designed to hold your Dovo straight razor and shaving brush.
