Dovo 115 5861 Diamant Straight Razor, 5/8 Inch Black Full Hollow Ground Carbon Steel Blade, White Ebonywood Handle, Germany. Gorgeous, top of the line Diamont model with 5/8" hollow ground gold etched Black Carbon Steel blade.  This style is the finest straight razor edge produced by Dovo, and it is very delicate and extremely sharp. The handle is excellent quality White Ebonywood. 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.

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.

Love this razor! When I got it I hit the edge with my Norton waterstones and then stropped it. It shaves sooo smooth. I also stained the handle as I like it a little darker than it came.

I have used this razor for over a year and it always gives me a close smooth shave.

I've had a couple straight razors and now this one. It's the best one I've ever used.

Excellent razor! Arrived exactly as expected, in great condition, and very sharp even without being honed. A word of advice - you will need to hone this razor before shaving to get the best shave. I would recommend having someone professionally hone it if there is someone in your area who provides that service.

So much more beautiful in person than this photo shares. It arrived in a few days and the customer service is excellent.

Awesome razor! I've had several straight razors and this one is the best so far - it gives an incredibly smooth shave.

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!

I first saw this razor's price and thought why is it so expensive? I decided to try this out, and I must say it was worth the money, it arrived before the estimated time, it came ready to shave, it was very sharp but I did a little honing just to make sure, well when it all comes down to it you can't go wrong with this purchase.

Thanks for promptly sending out the knife. The knife is excellent and the stag handles are better than I had hoped. I am extremely pleased with the knife. Thanks for having that last one in stock. This will be my EDC knife now.
