Dovo Straight Razor Best Quality 5/8"
Excellent Carbon Steel Straight Razor for Beginners
The Dovo 5/8” is an excellent razor for beginners and those who prefer a robust and no-frills knife. In terms of sharpness, thoroughness and handling, it is in no way inferior to its brothers. All surfaces of the razor are finely ground by hand in several stages. The top and bottom of the tang are ribbed, so you have a firm grip on it even with wet or foamy fingers.
The short blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without much pressure. At the same time, it is still agile enough to be able to manage technically demanding passages around the nose, ears and chin with agility.
The head is concave in shape with a slightly rounded tip, this curve makes it easier to shave even around the ears, nose and dimples. Such a design offers you high precision without having to forego safety.

Directions of Use
Your shave begins with honing the knife on a belt. After generously smearing your face with shaving cream or shaving oil, grip the knife with the open handle pointing away from you. With your free hand, stretch your facial skin to form as straight an area as possible. Position the knife at an angle of about 30° and gently scrape your beard. First with the line, then across and finally against the direction of growth.
Most razors are made from carbon steel. To avoid staining, rinse your knife with warm water after shaving. Then pat it dry with a cloth without touching the cutting edge and store it open in a dry place. There should be at least 48 hours between two applications so that the stressed cutting burr can straighten itself out again. If you don't use your knife for a long time, coat it with an acid-free care oil.
