Dovo 5/8 Barbarossa Shavette Razor

£119.50

This 5/8 Barbarossa Shavette straight razor is new from Dovo and features a short blade of approximately 52 mm length. Unusually for Dovo it has a stainless steel satin finished full hollowed blade with a Spanish point and features the Barbarossa motif in black. It has ebony wood scales which are marked with the Dovo Solingen Germany logo in silver with decorative banding. According to Dovo, the word "shavette" is being used here in it's true meaning of "small razor", hence this razor has a fixed blade and does not have the interchangeable blades which you would normally associate with the word shavette. The short blade with its Spanish point is particularly suited to contouring and shaping beards.

"Barbarossa" means red beard in Italian and the razor seems to be named after Frederick I, known as Frederick Barbarossa, who was a 12th Century King of Germany and who became one of the most celebrated Holy Roman Emperors.
