The Dovo Solingen Shavette Straight Razor uses disposable blades, so there's no need to purchase a hone, strop or any of the other gear. Because it's virtually maintenance free, it's well suited to those who are just starting out, travel regularly or don't want the difficulty and expense usually involved in caring for a traditional straight razor. When the blade gets dull, just remove it and insert a new one. Features an ebony wood handle and stainless steel shank for lightweight durability. Includes a spare Clear Sleeve and one Double Edge Blade to get you started. Made in Germany by Dovo Solingen and covered by a 2 Year Australian Warranty.
