DOVO Straight Razor

Dovo Straight Razor

DOVO Stainless Steel Headshaver

What I like

  • DOVO is a German based razor company and have been in business for 100 years, so they know what they are doing when it comes to making high quality straight razors.
  • Easy to hold
  • High Quality Blade

What I don’t like

  • Takes time getting the technique of shaving with a straight razor. It’s not just this razor, but any of them.
  • Plastic Handle
  • A bit pricey, but it is a great quality razor.  If you go with a cheaper razor you will get subpar quality, so it makes sense to save up if you are just getting into straight razor shaving.

Review

The DOVO Classic Straight razor is a very good razor with a heafty price tag, but getting into straight razor shaving can be expensive and this is really the lowest amount you are going to pay for a proper straight razor from a quality company.  If you are just getting into straight razor shaving then I would highly recommend watching some videos to learn about preparing your razor, blade maintenance, other tools you will need to use a straight razor, and to learn a bit about shaving technique.

Expect the first few shaves to be very painful and not very pretty.  Once you get the hang of it your face and or head will be super smooth, but getting there is a bit of a learning curve.

I love the idea of shaving my face and my bald head the way people did hundreds of years ago.  Go ahead and pickup one of these razors, you’ll be happy you did.
