This Master's razor from Dovo is new for 2016 and replaces the shoulderless version (IE010018) which is being discontinued. Another difference is that this version carries a carbon blade.
Dovo's Prima Klang razors have a 5/8 extra full hollow ground blade from carbon steel. This variant has bocote scales which have a very dark grain in otherwise mid-toned colouring, set off by a brass heel pin and spacer. The spine is plain. The blade has a goldwash Solingen mark, making for a very attractive razor.
This Dovo Special 5/8 Razor has Faux Tortoiseshell handles inlaid with the Dovo logo. The blade is gold washed and etched, giving an extremely attractive and popular razor. N.B. No tortoises were harmed in the manufacture of this razor!
This razor is for anyone seeking a large square point blade at a reasonable price. This Thiers Issard 7/8 razor has simple black plastic scales and an unmarked mirror finish blade. The grelot form blade has anti-slip jimping to the upper and lower side of the tang.

Welcome to The Invisible Edge. We specialise in straight razors (or cut throat razors if you prefer) stocking a wide range of high quality straight razors from European and Japanese manufacturers. We also stock all the straight razor accessories you might require including shaving brushes, strops (including our own top-quality custom strops), hones, starter kits and more, supplemented by a select range of men’s skincare and grooming products. We also provide a razor sharpening and re-pinning service to help keep our customers’ razors in use.
We ship Worldwide and accept all major credit cards as well as Paypal.
All of our razors are individually prepared and supplied “shave ready”. We do not rely on the factory sharpening alone. This means that our razors are ready to use when you receive them and you will know how the edge should feel when you come to maintain the razor. Our Policy page describes what we do in more detail.
We provide free shipping worldwide for all orders over £125, but there is a charge for orders of a lower value. Full details may be found here.
We accept payment by Visa, MasterCard and Maestro credit and debit cards as well through a Paypal account.
N.B. Prices are determined in GBP. For your convenience you are able to see indicative prices in U.S. Dollars and Euros but payment will be taken in GBP and there will inevitably be some variation to the U.S. Dollar and Euro prices shown.
While there is a lot of myth surrounding the straight razor, for centuries the straight razor was used by men, every day, to get rid of their stubble. True, it does take a little practice to use a straight razor safely and effectively but the results are just as good, if not better, than other methods. With a straight razor you get to start each shave with what is effectively a new blade, without the ongoing cost or environmental impact of disposable blades.
The business has been in operation since 2006, and we now operate from our base in Dorset, UK. We don't just deliver to the UK, but ship every week to the USA, EU and indeed to a worldwide community of straight razor enthusiasts. We remain a small concern dedicated to providing our customers a personal service and as much support as we can.
And why the name “The Invisible Edge”? Well, that comes from Shakespeare's 'Loves Labours Lost', Act 5, Scene 2, where Boyet says-
"The tongues of mocking wenches are as keen/As is the razor's edge invisible/Cutting a smaller hair than may be seen"
