    I like the Dovos I've got but I love my TIs. Just the overall ambience, though like TBS said, once honed up the shave is DFS with one or the other.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    TI might be slightly harder to hone, I had a hard time restoring a Spartacus, but wow ! The shave is smooth. I don't know, I'm in need of money so I might sell it yet. BUT the shave is great.
    I still love my Dovo thought, it is cheaper, provide a honest shave anytime, needs little stropping.

    I think in the end you should be patient and get both, then you will write us a nice comparative shave review !

    What is the general consensus on Thiers vs Dovo? from what i read German blades are probably the best but most of Thiers blades are over 300$ compared to Dovo's avr of 200$ for a blade.

    So is Thiers a better quality blade then Dovo?

    For my 2nd blade i was thinking of a Bismark or a Astral or jumping to Thiers with a Le Canadien
    But Phil at Classicedge told me that he didnt really like Thiers Issard so i stuck with Dovo for my 1st blade.
    I first bought a Thiers Issard Razor and bought a Best Quality Dovo next.

    So far the Dovo IMO is best. The TI I am having to sharpen faster than the Dovo.

    I prefer TI over Dovo, the TI's have more heft and their edges tend to give a much more smoother feel to the shave.

    A professionally honed TI is a great razor. For the money I would buy a quality Japanese straight razor. You will get a better bang for the buck.

    TI offers a 7/8 and I have not seen one from Dovo. That would swing me but not everyone.

    I am in the process of getting a Dovo Best Quality or Thiers-Issard Le Dandy, so this post has been helpful. Thank you.

    I'd go TI personally, I have 3 very nice TI's from the Classic Edge and Phil will put a killer edge on the blade and Jane will look after any problems you have or can guide you around any questions regarding future interests around wet-shaving.

    From what I've gathered so far, the Dovo has softer steel than the TI. I'm not sure if thats good or bad. Anyone know which steel provides a more comfortable shave?
