14 reviews
  • 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

Nice razor

This was my first straight razor and I'm happy with my choice. I have big hands and I was a little concerned how this would feel but it's a nice size. It is well balanced and comfortable in the hand. It's a good looking blade as well, the gold etching is a nice touch. I thought I'd get multiple shaves out of this blade before needing to strop it. First shave was great, second was ok but by the third it was pulling alot. I recommend getting a strop, if you dont already have it, when you purchase the razor, I had to order one and go back to my safety razor until it arrived. Once I stroped the blade it came right back to life and my shaves have been great since.

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…)
