Dovo 116 5851 Forestal Straight Razor, 5/8 Inch Full Hollow Ground Carbon Steel Blade, Cocobolo Wood Handle, Germany. This style is the finest straight razor edge produced by Dovo, and it is very delicate and extremely sharp. The handle is excellent quality one-of-a-kind Cocobolo Wood. The blade is 5/8" wide. The carbon steel blade has these advantages: the edge is easier to sharpen and the blade generally holds an edge better. However, if not dried properly, or if it is exposed to humidity or dampness, a carbon blade will rust. The blade has a very fine and vulnerable cutting edge. Cutting other materials than beard hair may damage or destroy it. Careful stropping of the blade before shaving maintains the blade's cutting ability for several months, but too much pressure on the strop can damage the fine cutting edge. After use, the blade and handle have to be cleaned and dried carefully. In case of long term storage, the blade should be lubricated and entirely covered by oil.  Comes safely stowed in a beautiful blue metal presentation case.

All razors come factory certified ready to shave.

Dovo handcrafts their straight razors in Solingen, Germany, the "City of Blades" that is known for producing the world's finest swords, knives, scissors and razors. Today, the "Solingen" mark is synonymous with high quality and superb design and 90% of all German knives are made in Solingen. The Solingen tradition of metal-working began with Medieval sword smiths and the specialized expertise has been passed down through the generations. Dovo blades are crafted using the same methods of blank forging, ice tempering, hardening, grinding, honing and polishing. Each blade is finished with a 24K-gold Dovo logo. Dovo strives to exceed the high standards set by the early sword smiths by handcrafting high quality, functional straight razors of superb design.

This is my first straight razor, so I'm still learning how to master the art of shaving. But this is an excellent razor. Extremely sharp, so it was a little intimidating at first, but I love it! The best shave I have ever had!

Great looking razor. Sharper than a 70's mustache pornstar in an all you can eat pumpkin festival. Looks beautiful. Out of the box sharp. These guys deliver fast and the customer service was awesome.

The Dovo Forestal straight razor is a beautiful razor and a great shaver. I have owned one for one year now and absolutely love it! It stands right beside all my other razors which include vintage ones and a few customs. I love the way it shaves just as much as my others. The design is ellegant and classic. I got mine from Oso Grande and suggest that you do the same. They are a fabulous shaver!

I was very pleased with the knives I purchased and was also very pleased with the quick shipping of my purchase. I plan to buy knives from this company again in the near future.
