DOVO Solingen & Col Conk Model Name and Numbers - DOVO 1196865 - Encina Blade - DOVO #1196865 - Col Conk Straight Razor #6865 The DOVO Spanish Oak 6/8 Straight Razor, Pointed Handle Shave Ready. Dovo was founded in 1906 by Carl Dorp and Carl Arthur Voos. The company is located in Solingen, Germany, a town with a legacy of producing some of the world's finest metal work. The City of Blades, as Solingen is known, uses techniques developed by the town's medieval sword smiths to produce swords, knives, scissors and razors. The Solingen mark has come to symbolize high quality, functionality and superb design, and 90% of German knives are made by the town's craftsmen. Dovo is one of two companies that produces quality straight razors in large volumes and strives to exceed the high standards of their town. The specialized expertise that has been handed down through the generations involves a multi-step process for handcrafting metal into elegant and functional products. The process includes blank forging, ice tempering, hardening, grinding, honing and polishing. The Dovo craftsmen are masters of this tradition, and each Dovo straight razor is evidence of their superb skills and serve as showpieces as much as shaving tools. The resurgence of wet shaving has resulted in shaving tools becoming masterpieces of craftsmanship and artistry. Blades are etched, sometimes in 24K gold, scales are handcrafted from a variety of rare and exotic materials and straight razors often feature intricate etched designs along the spines of the blade. The Dovo Spanish oak straight razor with 6/8 blade features pointed scales and a carbon steel blade with a rounded tip. Because southern red oak occurs in the areas of early Spanish colonies, the tree was given the name spanish oak. The scales have a light to medium reddish-brown color, including very light pink and blood red. The wood tone is warm and charming with a fairly course, showy grain and a degree of variation throughout each piece. The 6/8 blade provides adequate surface for lather and requires less rinse cycles while shaving.
