Form and function, poetry and prose, delicacy and danger! As a true renaissance man, you can appreciate the paradoxes at play in the timeless shave from a "cut-throat" razor. This beautiful blade from Dovo showcases the meticulous manufacturing and delightful design that have made them steel-working masters for over a century. Take a look at Dovo "Encina" 6/8" Spanish Oak Straight Razor.
New for 2011, this Dovo straight razor has a beautiful Spanish Oak handle. The gracefully grained light wood handle completes the elegant look. Made of Spanish Oak, the scales are smooth, simple, and subtle, like the perfect gentleman. With attention to its care, this grooming requisite will last a lifetime of great shaves. Make sure that it is dried completely after each use and stored in a dry, well-ventilated location. The addition of a good hanging strop to your shaving repertoire will also be necessary.
The round tip blade is 6/8" stainless steel ground to a full hollow. The blade is decorated with the "Encina" brand on a brushed satin finish. There are file jimps on the underside of the tang and etching on the spine. The full-hollow grind is often preferred by wet shavers and the 6/8" length and rounded point is perfect for general beard growth removal. Beautiful form and noteworthy function blend in this shaving requisite.

Dovo Straight Razors come with a factory edge that they guarantee for 2 years. Many customers find that they want a sharper edge than what comes from the factory, which can be accomplished through additional professional honing. We work with a professional honer, Max, who can add that edge to the razor. If you would like Max to hone your razor, please select the option from the drop down. (There is no delay in shipping it you choose this option.)
