SKU: DV985850 MPN: 985850
Dovo 98 5850 Buffalo Horn Handle Straight Razor, Large Handle and 5/8 Inch Full Hollow Ground Carbon Steel Blade, Germany. This straight razor is produced by Dovo of Solingen, the finest manufacturer of straight razors in the world. From the distinctive Buffalo Horn handle comes a mirror polished, hollow ground blade forged from Carbon Steel that features 24k gold decorative etching. This truly is an exquisite piece of craftmanship and an ideal addition to any straight razor collection. The blade is 5/8" wide. Imported directly from Dovo in Solingen, Germany.
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 of your straight razor 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.

I have to say that despite trepidations of ordering online, my transaction with Oso Grande was absolutely flawless. I emailed Oso Grande about a knife availability and promptly got a response within hours. I proceeded to call and place my order over the phone. A follow up "thank you" email and tracking email was sent to me straight away and the knife, a Spyderco Delica 4 Titanium/Damascus showed up perfectly. Overall, I would be happy to recommend and order from Oso Grande again.
