Bearing functionality in mind, the DOVO Barbarossa features a short 5/8 inch blade to cater to the needs of barbers and all bearded men. The straight razor’s short blade guarantees effortless mobility and precision for ultimate control in accurately shaping and contouring the beard. The classic engraving of the noble bearded Emperor Barbarossa adds a luxurious finishing touch to this eccentric razor.
- Carbon steel 1.2210 blade
The Barbarossa’s blade wears 1.2210 carbon steel or silver steel with 61 HRC hardness. It has been heated to over 1,000 °C and tempered to about 200 °C to achieve maximum elasticity and toughness.
- Square point, Roof-shaped spine, One-sided ribbed tang
Having a traditional square point, the Barbarossa’s blade profile has its cutting edge stopping directly at the tip at a 90° angle. Experienced shavers can benefit most from the boxed shape point, which accounts for comfortable and meticulous shaping and shaving around narrow areas on the face.
- Full hollow ground
To guarantee ultimate precision and control, the Barbarossa went through a rigorous hollow grinding process. Its blade is ground concavely from its back to its cutting edge for a functional design with excellent flexibility and high torsional rigidity. The edge bevels perfectly on the skin, offering a satisfying sound and gentle shave sans vibration.
The 5/8 inch width of the blade acts as a versatile shaving partner that can cater to any wet shaving task. The blade’s heft or weight accounts for a close and smooth shave in fewer passes around the nose, ears, and chin without the need to apply too much pressure. In the end, it prevents accidental nicks and horrid skin irritations after shaving.
- Olive wood handle
Olive wood boasts an alluring and multicolored appearance, making it the perfect handsome choice for straight razors donning an aesthetic appeal. It is more robust and resilient than other woods against mold infestation and water, therefore being a favorable material for shaving tools such as handles of straight razors, shaving brushes, and shavettes.
- 14.5 cm x 2.4 cm x 1.1 cm
Before using any straight razor, the blade should be run through a leather strop 15-20 times on each side. Prepare your lather on a shaving scuttle and prep your skin with a warm towel. Apply a shaving oil before putting a generous amount of lather on your face using a shaving brush. Hold your razor with the handle pointing away from you and use your free hand to gently stretch the skin opposite to the area you are shaving. Shave while following a natural and comfortable direction.
To guarantee that a carbon steel straight razor blade stays at its prime quality, ensure that the straight razor is completely dry after use. Dab the blade dry with a cloth while avoiding the edge and hang it in a razor stand to drain excess moisture properly. Let the razor rest for 48 hours before shaving again to have the burr realign itself. If the razor is not going to be used for an extensive period, apply an acid-free oil before storing it.
