- family heirloom
- star deduction
Love the razor, paid the extra for it to be honed, but it does tug and I wish it was a touch sharper. I have been using a feather AC with the pro blades. I know those are scary sharp but I just wish the dovo was sharper than it is. So 1 star deduction, otherwise what a great razor. Certainly makes you feel inspired while using it. A more elegant weapon from a more civilized age. Plus makes a great family heirloom.
This is my first straight
This is my first straight razor after 1 year of double edge, and several years of multi blades razors. This is a complete new experience. The Dovo Forestal is a great razor, comes really sharp with the honing option, ready to shave ! Looks like a razor to keep and use for a long time. The Dovo box on the other hand looks a bit cheap for the price of the razor.
My first straight razor
I have been researching straight razor shaving for a few years and decided on this razor to be my first. Getting right to my impressions of this razor: I LOVE IT!!! First of all, I've never gotten as close as a shave as I do when I shave with this razor. It truly looks like a piece of art in my shave den. The guys at West Coast Shaving sent out my razor and I had it within three days of ordering it. I also opted on having them hone the razor for me before shipping it and I won't have to have it re-honed for a few more months because of it. I can't wait to shave each day because I know that I have this razor to look forward to.
Great Shave, Better Looking Razor
Huge fan of this razor. Not only does it provide a great shave (following the work of the excellent honemeister), but it truly is a beauty. It found a place among my other straights in the daily rotation. Cannot recommend highly enough!
Beautiful razor! The honed edge was superb. Allowing a great shave.
