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 "Classic" Straight Razor, Black Handle, 5/8" I like this razor but haven’t had it or used it enough to give a productive review. I do know that the customer service at West Coast Shaving has been top notch in all of my dealings with them. Thanks Kevin!

Dovo "Special" Tortoise 5/8' Straight Razor As far as construction and aesthetics I think this razor is superb. I base my opinion on my general experience with knives. Still learning how to shave with a cut throat so I don't have a reference point on which to comment on performance other than to say that it does a good job of cutting hair - and no nicks! I am glad I purchased a round tip - at least until my technic with shaving and honing solidifies. I recommend giving this razor a try.

My first straight razor

Dovo Forestal 5/8" Straight Razor with Cocobolo Wood Scales 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.

Dovo Forestal 5/8" Straight Razor with Cocobolo Wood Scales 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!

GREAT INTRO RAZOR

Dovo Inox Olivewood 5/8" Straight Razor This is the first straight razor I have purchased. The razor came promptly and it was sharpened. For me personally it needed a little bit more to be shave-ready but it definatly was useable. So after a slight stoning on a 8000 grit waterstone and a stripping this thing will cut you just by looking @ it. I highly recommend both the product and the company!!!!
