Description

The Dovo 5/8 Runde Sache Razor with red scales is a new offering which, though priced at the lower end of the Dovo price range, has a contemporary design with elaborate engraving on both sides and a champfered spine.

The Dovo 5/8 Runde Sache Razor has a carbon steel blade with a square point and jimping to the lower tang. The scales are made of hardwearing red PMMA, which is known as acrylic glass. The red is bright, I would call it a scarlet. A complex polishing process gives the material its unmistakable shine. It has the advantage that you don’t have to take special care of the material. Simply wipe off soap residue and dirt with a damp cloth. Its special feature, however, is the elaborately engraved blade which is covered with a geometric pattern and which appears on both the front and back.

The razor is quite light and agile so it would make a good introduction to square point shaving.

Supplied in a simple DOVO branded cardboard sleeve. We would therefore recommend purchasing a wallet or box for storing this razor.

SHAVE READY – Unlike some retailers, we individually prepare all the razors we sell. For full details see our policy.

Dovo History

Founded in 1906, the company DOVO Steelware of Solingen, Germany was originally purely a factory producing straight razors, with a forge and hollow grinding shop employing thirteen workers. The name DOVO derives from the names of the founders of the company, Mr. Dorp and Mr. Voos. As a mark of German craftsmanship, the name "Solingen" enjoys the confidence of the whole world. In order to keep this trust and with it the reputation of the Solingen cutting tools, and to prevent misuse of this name, the German government passed a law in 1938 to protect the name of Solingen. The law makes stipulations relating to the geography of the production area with the intention of protecting regional industry. If an article is manufactured in Solingen but the raw materials (i.e. the blanks) are produced elsewhere, the article may not bear the Solingen name. The law "for the protection of the name of Solingen", distinguishes between so-called hot-forged and the cold-forged items, which do not bear the Solingen mark of quality.

The name Dovo of Solingen, has therefore become synonymous with the Dovo quality standard of German engineering and the hot forged steel processes still used in production of the fine shaving razors listed on this website.
