- Dovo Astrale
Appropriately named: out-of-this-world great razor
Everything about my new Dovo Astrale razor is delightful. The heft and balance are just right. The feel of the ebony wood is a pleasure. The craftsmanship of the blade is outstanding. After two shaves, I’m sincerely happy I decided to retire my granddad’s straight razor. Also, having WCS hone my razor before shipping was another wise investment. I look forward to engraving my initials and date of receipt on the plate on the ebony scale. (Maybe WCS could consider adding this as an option for future customers…)
Dovo "Astrale" Ebony 5/8" Straight Razor
Beautiful razor...great smooth shave for the 1st time, but had to send it off for rehoning after only 1 shave. Fast shipping!
Sharp and elegant
What can I haven't used it for long buts it's the closet shave I've had with the most beautiful razor I've used.
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
Did my homework...
I read everything I could on straight edge razors and compared the offerings of several sites. My son was very surprised and pleased with his Christmas gift.
