Product Description

The Shavette, Change Your Blade, system is the leading system used by barbers and stylists. It is also a great razor for learning to shave your face. Why? Because the blade is designed for shaving the neck area, so the blade edge has less flex. Less blade edge flex equals less nicks in the learning phase of shaving. Replacement blades sold separately, item includes one blade only. Features stainless steel Shavette holder and black handle. Due to the hyienic nature of this product, returns will not be accepted if the item is opened and/or used.

Let me start off with this: I am no shave enthusiast. I am not a shave geek, or a shave snob. I am not the kind to invest tons of money in luxurious and premium shave products, or the kind to take the time for certain aspects of traditional shaving.

What I am is a guy who simply looking to get a nice clean shave without all of the nicks, burns, and bumps. Part of that search involved replacing my Gillette Mach 3 with something a little more simple. I used to dread having to shave every morning. I knew my face would be itching for the rest of the day, and I would have some ugly razor bumps.

So I decided to look into an old fashioned straight razor blade, and I found this. I have to say, I like the fact that all I have to do is change the blade out and be ready to shave. Unlike traditional blades, this does not require any annual sharpening or daily stropping. Just snap a double edged blade in two and place one into the razor. Once it dulls, just take it out and replace it with the other half.

There is a learning curve with this, however, and like any blade, it has the potential to be dangerous, but once you get the technique down, you're on your way to close and burn/bump free shaves. In addition, I also noticed the health of my facial skin has improved dramatically. My face no longer is red from burn, and when used with old-fashioned shave cream and a brush, it is moisturized and clean.

There are a variety of blades to choose from out there. Just search Amazon for double edge razor blades. Some of the most popular are Derby, Feather, and Merkur blades (I use the Merkurs). Plus, you can also find some double edge blades at local places like Walmart and H-E-B. Just try some and see what works best for you.

If you suffer from nasty shaves and see daily shaving as more of a curse to men than an enjoyable, beneficial activity, then pick up one of these, learn it, and enjoy it.

As a professional barber i use this razor everyday for everything from facial shaves to lining up sideburns. The ease of use and quick and easy replacement of blades make it a must have for professional and personal use. The only downside i have come across is that the plastic blade holder can get brittle when left in a jar of disinfectant for long periods of time. Keep your razor clean and it will work wonders for you.

Good for learning, couple nicks already, but, I would like to move up to a real razor sharp barber knife eventually. Practice, practice, practice. FYI: It's very lightweight, plastic with stiff metal holder, and the plastic red straight-edge razor holder is a bit tricky at first, but you should be able to pry it open with a little effort. Wish it came with more tips or a care book, or something, though.

So I'm new to this whole straight razor shaving world and with that being said this review may only help those of you just coming into it as I am.

For starters I didn't buy this razor from this seller (I cant seem to find them again) so I will only remark on the Dovo itself and not on the shipping.

Any ways the over all make up of the razor is good but not what I was expecting really.. The handle is a light plastic that feels ok in the hand but doesn't have that bullet proof feeling I think most old razors have and the pin keeping the handle to the "blade" keeps the thing from opening up to much while your shaving and that's nice but it does look a little cheap so my money is on that breaking first.

As for the "blade" section.. Its metal and seems well done with a small plastic grip next to the hinge and the first time I tried to take the red sleeve out I thought I was going to rip the thing apart but after a few shaves it pops out when I need it to.

All in all it's a good razor and great for starting out. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the handle is a bit to light and the pin worries me

I bought this for travel since I can't take my normal razor on a plane. I wish I hadn't. I had decided to buy either this or the Parker SR1 Stainless Steel Straight Edge Razor and 5 Shark Super Stainless blades (which was half the price at the time). I went with the Dovo since that was a name I recognized. If you just want the short and sweet, buy the Parker and save yourself from buying both.

This is too light for me to use comfortably (and by comfortably I mean without bleeding). That alone is personal preference and given as a heads up. If you're used to a straight this will probably be too light for you too.

On to the real problem area. The folded red plastic blade holder. It broke at the folding seam after four or five uses. It still functioned afterward but allowed the blade to move a little. The holes and bumps inside the blade holder don't line up right with my preferred blades (Feather Professional) which allowed those to move a little more. Not that it would matter too much if the bumps did line up since the red plastic bows from being folded (or at least did before breaking) and lets the blade slip out on one side.

One could easily save some time and money by folding a business card in half, sliding in a disposable blade, and securing the whole thing with a paper clip. Use a couple of pencils and a rubber band if you need a handle.

If the idea of a blade rocking wantonly back and forth as you drag it across your neck doesn't deter you then you'll probably love this. I would rather use a rusty box knife than bring this near my face again, a week of dreading and fearing my morning shave was more than enough. Don't take my word for it though, I'm neither a barber nor a shave geek.
