    Smile Hi From Singapore - Looking for Dovo Shavette Razor

    Hi Guru's,
    As I embark on this wonderful journey of SR Shaving, looking forward to your continued support.
    I have been scouting for a Dovo Shavette straight razor (Red holder) for long. I checked with barber supply stores, Little India and Mustafa with little luck.
    Could any of the experienced users guide me as to where i could get a Dovo shavette razor?

    Thanks a Ton in advance,
    Prakash

    Welcome!

    SRD sells them via their site.

    No Sharpen Straight Razors : Straight Razor Designs, The Finest In Gentlemens Shaving And Grooming Needs

    If you google them there are a load of places that sell them, including Amazon.

    Are you planning to get a proper straight razor or just stick with the shavette? If you're looking for the real deal check out the classifieds as well..!

    Also, have a read of the Wiki and other articles that are linked in my sig line as they'll really help you on your way!

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Greetings Stubear, Thanks for your reply!
    I was actually looking to touch and feel the razor before actually buying it. Just can't wait to lay my hands on a shavette.

    I feel i have some road to travel before i actually turn to a proper SR.

    Have looked up street directories and called up many barber supply stores.. But none of them stock Shavette's! What a pity

    No problem!

    To be honest though, if you ultimately intend to use a straight razor I'd just bite the bullet and get one, rather than getting a shavette and then a straight later on.

    After all, if you get the shavette thats just money that you could have spent on the straight!

    I'm not sure where in Singapore you could actually go and handle one though, maybe theres someone here who lives locally to you who could help you out. Check out the members map and see if there is someone, that might be a way to go?

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Namaste Prakash,

    If you're ever in Hong Kong, there's a store here that carries Shavettes, or you can check mine out (shoot, you can even shave with one of mine). I'm actually here to graduate from the Shavette to a real straight.
