  • Meticulous straight razor from Dovo
  • High carbon steel, half-ground, 5/8th blade
  • Genuine ebony scales

Meticulous. Precise. Expert. Specialized. Hand-crafted. If these are the words to describe your straight razor, then look to Dovo. Heralding from the land of cutlery, Solingen, Germany, this company has over a hundred years of cutlery experience. Sharp, handcrafted blades are their life-blood. Check out the bestselling Dovo "Astrale" Ebony 5/8" Straight Razor.

This blade is a half-hollow grind of high carbon steel and, along with the 5/8" size, it is perfect for general removal of beard growth. The etching on the blade is 24k gold and lends itself to the mystique of straight edge shaving. The rounded point is excellent for a smooth shave as it helps disperse the pressure from the blade. Correct care of your utensil is imperative, so make sure to rinse in clear water and dry thoroughly after each use.

The scales are a genuine ebony and provide a perfect balance for the head. There is a blank, engraving plate on the handle as well. This is truly a master-piece of workmanship as it goes through over one hundred steps before it leaves the factory.

  • Size: 5/8"
  • Material: Carbon steel
  • Grind: Half Hollow
  • Scales: Ebony
  • Markings: Gold etching on blade. Engraving plate on scales.

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.)

Made in Solingen, Germany

Good razor.

The razor is extremely well made, and there were no problems with WCS in the entire process.

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.
