I am so sick of reading purists bashing of Dovo straights. GET A LIFE DUDES. There are only a handful of major manufacturers of straights remaining in this world. There used to be A BUNCH...but there now, only a few. Anyway...back to the review...your realistic choices in a straight are Thiers-Issard (read, French...and we will never respond to anyone who is not), and Dovo (read German...precision...Mercedes man, Mercedes !!!). And so, to answer the purists...yes...you need to hone and prepare a Dovo out of the coffin even though they claim them as shave-ready. Big...stinking...deal...man, so hone it !!! And then...Shave On Man...Shave On !!!
Notes on our reviews:
...we are not attempting to portray every product that we review with glowing praise and self-serving promotion, we are attempting to give you our honest opinions. As such, if we do begin gushing out praise, then it's a heartfelt and based upon our personal likes and proclivities. Otherwise expect clinical and objective comments or, in the worse cases, criticisms when necessary.
...the opinions and views expressed in our reviews are provided as yet one more piece of the never-ending shavers puzzle. You are encouraged to seek out as many discussions and other reviews as possible, rife on the shaving forms, and to explore the manufacturer's own websites for precise specifications and descriptions. Although we do our absolute best to provide accurate information as well as our own observations, we are most likely sure to make a few mistakes, here and there, and we will most assuredly keep vigilant in keeping those to a minimum.
...you are always welcome to call us for further or more in-depth discussion of any of our products.
