This razor is "factory shave ready".

From Dovo:

Centuries-old tradition. Wood grown for decades. One year of development time. Everything for the perfect shave. The finished design of the blade pays homage to Japanese blacksmithing. Let it slide across your face and feel the attention to detail that makes this piece iconic. The sustainable walnut, maple, spruce, and beech wood of the handles have been compacted and hardened to such an extent by a novel process that it effortlessly resists soap and water. After shaving, the knife is much too good to disappear into the case: the polished tang and back as well as the innovative shape set visual accents.

Box Content: Razor

Material: Carbon Steel

This straight razor is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness.

Handle Material: Ultra Densified Beechwood

The exclusive handle combines tradition with modernity. The sustainable SwissWood beech wood from Switzerland is brought to an incredibly high hardness through an innovative compaction process so that the wood defies the adversities of water, and soap and is thus in no way inferior to the longevity of the blade.

Cut: Full Hollow

Blade Width: 5/8"

5/8-inch razors are true all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colors. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without great pressure. At the same time, it is still nimble enough to manage even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears, and chin.

Dimensions: 14.5 cm x 2.4 cm x 1.1 cm

Important advice to the User: The blade of your open straight razor has a very fine and vulnerable cutting edge. Touching it or cutting materials other than beard hair, or using it for other than its intended purpose will damage or destroy it. Therefore direct contact with the skin should only occur during the shaving session. Gentle stropping of the blade before shaving maintains the blade's cutting ability for several months, while too much pressure onto the strop will cause damage to the fine cutting edge.

Maintenance: Blades of open straight razors are made of stainless or carbon steel and therefore require particular diligence and maintenance. The blade and handle have to be cleaned and dried carefully after use. For long-term storage, the blade should be lightly oiled, and the open straight razor is kept in a dry environment.
