Description: A truly distinctive razor, this Dovo large buffalo horn straight razor (985850) is a functional piece of art that will make you enjoy shaving in the morning. This razor has a 5/8" full hollow ground carbon steel blade with gold plated details and spine. Gold details help protect these areas from rusting and oxidation. 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.
The handle is crafted from a single piece of natural buffalo horn which means no two handles will be alike. The handle you will receive may vary slightly from the photograph. The light weight buffalo horn handle makes it easy for the razor to be maneuvered for detail-oriented shaving.
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.
