What's the best straight razor you sell? Is a question frequently asked by enquirers.

The Dovo Best Class 955835 is one we'll often recommend. Why? Firstly, the Dovo Best Class is made from stainless steel therefore it's extremely well protected from corrosion, it looks absolutely fantastic and needless to say you're guaranteed a very close shave indeed.

Made in Solingen, Germany, Dovo produce the finest Straight Razors around, using a unique "hardening" heat treatment enables Dovo to achieve the highest degree of hardness, elasticity and resistance to wear in their Razors. 

Buying a straight razor such as The Dovo Best Class is a sound investment as it will last your lifetime and likely your grand-children's lifetime too. Additionally, buying a straight razor is an investment in the environment too, once made, a cut throat razor doesn't need expensive disposable cartridge blades every week which end up in landfill sites.

The real investment however is one of pleasure; the Dovo Best Class is a delight to use. Using a cut throat razor properly, will virtually eliminate razor bump and razor bumps as the single blade is far kinder to your skin than a multi blade cartridge razor or heaven forbid - an electric razor.

Expensive? Yes, initially but medium to long term - no. Have you ever worked out what you're spending in 1-year on Mach3 type cartridge blades? If you change your blade weekly, at a cost of £1.60 per blade, this works out at £19.20 annually x 10 x years = £192. This doesn't include inflation meaning that you'll recoup your financial outlay on a Dovo Best Class razor within 10 x years. Remember too that this is a hand crafted piece of engineering excellence, and not a mass produced item.
