Traditional Straight Razors

When you are committed to going "old-school" with your shave, then you probably want to look to a straight. These edges are loved for their closeness and longevity.

If you imagine yourself with a blade, a honing strop, and a mirror nailed to a tree, then you are probably ready to shave the "cut throat" way. Traditional straight razors just scream testosterone. While the initial investment in razor and strop can set you back a bit, you more than recoup the expense when you never have to buy another over-priced cartridge again. The time spent in honing your technique as well as your blade is worth the pay-off when you can get the closest shave of your life.

Dovo 6/8" Straight Razor with Black Handle "This is a well made instrument. I had WCS hone it for me and it is really sharp. It feels really good in your hands and shaves really nice. It's really good quality for the price. Definitely a good starter straight razor.

Dovo "Classic" Straight Razor, Black Handle, 5/8" "I've never wet shaved before. I researched methods and products before reaching out to West Coast Shaving to purchase my entire first kit. Their prices were fantastic compared to others and their customer service was excellent. I don't have anything to compare my Dovo "Classic" 5/8 to, but after my rookie attempt to strop it and give it a go, I'm very pleased. It takes practice but I'm very pleased with the razor. I'll be shopping WCS for all my future shave needs.

Dovo "Astrale" Ebony 5/8" Straight Razor "I would definitely recommend this razor to someone looking for high quality razor at a decent price. I'm a little disappointed that it didn't come with the secondary badge that's on the picture as it seems to set the whole look off. I have also noticed a little of the stain bleeding onto the sink if my hands are a bit on the damp side. It did come shave ready (even though I didn't pay the extra) All in all it's a nice razor and seems to be something that I can pass down to my son when the time comes

Dovo Forestal 5/8" Straight Razor with Cocobolo Wood Scales I recently purchased this (which I had been eyeing for a year) and I decided it was time to lose the disposable razor and jump into a straight razor setup. NOTE: I am new to this whole experience and I have no guidance outside of my own research. let me tell you, after shaving with a straight razor daily for 3 weeks, I will never go back! I started out building confidence for a few days by only doing my right cheek and then jumped into the full deal. with this quality DOVO razor the things that I like are the rounded corners, a full hollow blade and a nice 5.8 size. those were things I found were perfect for beginners and pros alike. I have not yet cut myself which shows that the razor is forgiving. I love it and highly recommend it to everyone! strop twice daily, and do not get water in the hinge pin and NEVER store it in the bathroom to prevent the moisture from damaging it over time. if you take care of your razor it will outlast your children.
