Dovo Pearlex Straight Razor
This Dovo straight razor is made in the famous steelworks region of Solingen in Germany. Dovo straight razors are quality precision made shaving tools with the ability to hold a sharp edge. This Dovo cut throat razor's blade is made from carbon steel and features the Dovo trademark, etching on the blade and black celluloid scales (handle). A highly recommended razor for a beginner.
Good razor for a beginner like myself, handling is good, right weight, very sharp with just a little stropping.
Very good for its price. Looks business, feels solid. Required just a bit of stropping with extra-finishing paste, nothing more. Cuts you hair mid-air and passes every other sharpness test there is. The razor is relatively big, hence it's difficult to maneuver under the nose. Gives plenty of acoustic and tactile feedback while shaving. With rounded toe this razor is friendlier to newbies. And being made of carbon steel it is prone to rusting. I had to stop washing it at all, use only dry towel to remove lather and hair, and cover it in WD40 after every shave. Maybe it's an overkill, but not really hard for me to do so.
