Description

This Dovo Edo 5/8 in maple is an alternative version of the new Edo range from Dovo. This time the contemporary scales are made from sustainable Swiss maple wood. The wood goes through an innovative compaction process so that the wood is resistant to water and soap.  The innovative Japanese inspired full hollow blade is made from silver steel and has a slanted or inverted Turkish point.

Silver steel is a special form of carbon steel which is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness. It has no silver in it so far as I am aware.

All in all this Dovo Edo 5/8 in maple is a stunning contemporary take on the traditional straight razor.

Supplied with a simple leatherette DOVO wallet as shown and in a DOVO branded cardboard box.

SHAVE READY – all our razors  are individually prepared and supplied shave ready. For full details see our shave ready 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.
