Description

This razor from DOVO has a completely new and innovative design which took a year in the making and which is described by DOVO as being a tribute to Japanese blacksmithing. The Japanese influence on the Dovo Edo Spruce 5/8 razor is clear. It has a modern elegant design which draws on the simplicity and form of a classic kamisori.

The Dovo Edo Spruce 5/8 razor has a carbon steel blade is a full hollow shoulderless grind, with an inverted Turkish point and an almost flat spine and jimping to the lower tang. The scales are made from a mix of sustainable ultra compacted spruce wood hardened to withstand water and soap so your razor can continue to look its best.

The steel is 1.2210 which is a low alloy carbon steel. Quite a hard steel (slightly less than C135 but very similar) and hard wearing.

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.
