This razor is "factory shave ready".
The DOVO straight razor 42 is the last hairdressing knife in our range. Before the invention of interchangeable blade knives, coarsely ground knives were very common for shaving. Due to the small width of 3/8” and the French head, it is a good choice for experienced users to shave contours with millimeter accuracy.

Important advice to the User: The blade of your open straight razor has a very fine and vulnerable cutting edge. Touching it or cutting materials other than beard hair, or using it for other than its intended purpose will damage or destroy it. Therefore direct contact with the skin should only occur during the shaving session. Gentle stropping of the blade before shaving maintains the blade's cutting ability for several months, while too much pressure onto the strop will cause damage to the fine cutting edge.
