ABOUT: DOVO is a world-renowned razor manufacturer backed with over a century of experience making straight-razors. The "Encina" version of their straight-razor features a 6/8" blade, crafted with hollow ground carbon steel. This charming rendition of the famous classic straight-razor features a rustic handle in a Spanish Oak handle, where the scales are smooth, simple, and subtle. The gracefully grained light wood handle completes the elegant look. The blade is decorated with the "Encina" brand on a brushed satin finish. There are file jimps on the underside of the tang and etching on the spine. The full-hollow grind is often preferred by wet shavers and the 6/8" length and rounded point is perfect for general beard growth removal.
