The 5/8 inch DOVO Apex straight razor is the only square point razor in our product line. The straight razor stands out with its elegantly 24-carat gold-plated tang and ebony handle shells. In addition to its beauty, the straight razor offers you a fully hollow polished carbon steel blade that impresses with its sharpness and strength.
This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness. The ornaments are beautifully gold-plated with 24 karat gold.
Ebony is one of the most valuable woods on earth. It is extremely hard and heavy. Therefore, it is perfect for the production of a high-quality handle. Its structure allows the wood to retain its shape even in humid environments and prevents swelling of the material. Several grind cycles are necessary to create the silky smooth surface.
