DOVO Barbarossa Straight Razor 5/8" Full Hollow Ground Stainless Steel Blade, Spanish Head, Ebony Handles - 45 581
DV45581: Barbarossa Straight Razor
Full hollow ground 5/8" stainless steel blade with ebony wood handles. DOVO Solingen straight razors are some of the finest razors for shaving in the world. They have a centuries-old tradition of fine metalwork and their processes for making straight razors is impeccable. The machinery they use is no longer made and so they have to keep producing these products "the old way." The profile of the blade has to be just right. If you remove too much material, it throws the whole grind off and the razor will never shave correctly. There are few craftsmen qualified to do the finish grinding on these blades and it is difficult for DOVO to keep up with the worldwide demand. Made in Solingen, Germany.
