Dovo Shavette Disposable Blade Straight Razor
Looking to begin straight razor shaving but not sure where to start? The Dovo Shavette Disposable Blade Straight Razor is a versatile yet affordable 'relative' of the traditional straight razor that is ideal as an introductory razor for newcomers to shaving with an open blade.
As the Dovo Shavette uses disposable stainless steel DE razor blades, this eliminates the need to buy a hone, strop and other accessories which are associated with straight razors, reducing the cost of starting straight razor shaving considerably and you don't need to learn how to sharpen the blade either!
Using the light and agile Shavette by Dovo of Solingen allows you to get used to the angle and technique required for a comfortable straight razor shave. The small design of the Dovo Shavette also makes it easy to reach the hard to reach areas.
In addition, the blade holder acts as a guard, preventing the leading corner of the blade nicking you - very useful for 'newbies' to open razor shaving! Replacing the blades on the disposable blade razor couldn't be easier either.
Simply, slide out the red blade holder and insert half a double-edge safety razor blade into the holder, making sure it is held in place by the notches. Then, close the red holder and slide back into the Shavette (you should be able to see the very edge of the blade exposed from the razor). Ensure that the blade is aligned properly before shaving.
The Dovo Shavette is compatible with all DE safety razor blades including those by Merkur and Wilkinson Sword. Once you become more experienced, you may wish to try feather blades in your razor, although these can be very unforgiving!
Tthe Shavette comes with one disposable blade and a storage pouch making this a truly affordable way to get started with straight razor shaving.
