Description: The Dovo Prima Klang Straight Razor with Bocote (1065861) combines simplicity and elegance in this high performing carbon steel razor. This razor has a 5/8" extra full hollow ground ice-hardened carbon steel blade with gold details. The blade features a high polish which helps to close the pores in the steel and imparts limited oxidation resistance. The carbon steel blade must be rinsed and dried completely after each use to prevent rusting, but rewards with an exceptionally keen and long lasting edge. We recommend using camellia oil for easy maintenance.
A 5/8" blade is the perfect balance point between being a large enough blade to easily slice through thick, coarse hair while being small enough to shave under your nose or around your ears without a mishap. This also makes it a perfect beginning straight razor, which lets you decide if you will prefer a slightly longer or shorter razor in the future.
This is an extra full hollow ground razor, sometimes referred to as the 'singing' razor because it emits a 'note' when you pluck the edge with your finger. Many straight razor enthusiasts find that thin, singing blades provide the closest, most comfortable shaves. This razor is Dovo's thinnest grind.
The handle is crafted from natural bocote wood (Cordia spp.) prized for its zebra-like contrasting bold figure. The handle will protect the blade during storage and offers a nice balance to the blade during use.
Dovo was founded in 1906 just outside of Solingen, Germany. They began as a factory producing straight razors. They were a forge and hollow grinding shop. After World War II, as straight razor sales slowed due to the invention of the electric razor, Dovo began creating hair shears. Since then, they have become one of the leading makers in the shaving and manicure fields. With many people switching back to traditional razors to get the best shave, Dovo has returned to their roots as a quality razor company.
We recommend using a storage pouch when the razor is not being used or when traveling.
