DOVO Solingen & Col Conk Model Name and Numbers - DOVO 141588 - Solingen Imprinted Blade - DOVO #141588 - Col Conk Straight Razor #43 A review of the DOVO Pakkawood Straight Razor 5/8 Natural. Pakkawood is a beautiful material of exceptional quality. Pakkawood is man-made and it is produced by using intense heat and pressure to fuse multiple layers of the finest foreign and domestic hardwood veneers. The final product is strong, durable and weather and moisture resistant. Dyes are vacuum-impregnated into the wood, ensuring a vibrant and consistent color throughout the piece. Resins used during the production of Pakkawood provide a built-in finish. Because various veneers are used for Pakkawood, no two Pakkawood scales are exactly alike. The grain pattern and color of a piece is not known until the wood shaping process is complete. Pakkawood looks and feels like wood, but it is virtually waterproof and will not warp. Dovo uses Pakkawood in the 5/8 blade straight razor. As a company, Dovo strives to exceed the extremely high-quality standards of the Solingen mark. Solingen, Germany, is located in the North Rhine-Westphalia region and has a tradition of producing some of the world's best swords, knives, scissors and razors. The town has developed a reputation of producing high quality metal-working of superb design and functionality. Today, 90% of German knives are produced in the town. The techniques developed by the town's Medieval sword smiths have been passed down through the generations and are used by Dovo today to handcraft their razor blades. Using specialized expertise, blades are blank forged, ice tempered, hardened, ground, honed and polished. Each blade is finished with a 24K gold Dovo logo. The blades are fully hollowed, making them flexible and easy to maneuver in tight facial spaces, such as under the nose. Dovo straight razor blades are made from the finest carbon steel. The 5/8 blade is the most popular blade width for straight razors. The Dovo straight razor with 5/8 blade and Pakkawood scales is a marriage of beautiful high quality man-made materials.
