Dovo "Astrale" genuine ebony wood straight razor with engraving plate. Use yourself or engrave as a gift of distinction for that special someone. Ebony is a dense wood that is black with occasional chocolate-brown grain. Made in Solingen, Germany

  • Specs:
    ~ Carbon steel blade
    ~ 5/8" blade width
    ~ Rounded point
    ~ Half hollow ground
    ~ 24k gold-plated etching on blade
    ~ Ebony wood hand with engraving plate

~ Blade care: Be sure to dry the blade after use. Never leave it wet or enclose in a container damp. Carbon steel rusts, and even stainless steel can pit or rust if kept in the wrong conditions. Pick up some lube or oil for cutlery or sewing machines, for example, and apply lightly as needed or before storage. This simple step will protect your investment for a lifetime of use.

*** A message from DOVO STAHLWAREN: Straight razors leaving our company are always ready for shave, they are honed and stropped and pass the so called ‘Hair Test’ giving evidence of ultimate cutting. *** Note: understand that shave ready does not negate stroping before use as talked about in the FAQ's, so if new to straight razors please do some homework before purchase.  Read more here...
