    I will attempt to secure the blade and will advise. Thank you, gentlemen. I do get the sensation that I am speaking with another gentleman when I've communicated here. It will be interesting to me to see if you can judge a man by how he shaves...

    So you have encountered some disagreeables on here, eh? Fair enough...they are everywhere. Thusly, we will conceive in terms of probabilities instead of certainties...

    It's a great bunch of guys we have here, invariably I find guys here respectful, caring and well meaning. There's the occasional one or two who are argumentative or overly opinionated, but you get that...

    Just my two cents, you can only know if you like it until you try it. You might like the extra full hollows; you might not. If you do not like it you can always sale or trade for a different one. I have a coarse beard and have shaved with extra full hollow blades without issues. It does seem like a food deal for the money....if the edge is dialed in right.

    I have made the arrangements to purchase the blade tomorrow in the am. I dug a little with the guy to see why he was parting with it and got the response I was looking for: he has several, he is moving and needs to downsize and needs moving cash. When asked why the Dovo was the one that had to go he didn't specify, but did list his likes about the blade in knowledgable terms. My impression is that he knows what shave ready and dialed in is...fingers crossed. There will be new pics of the piece and the strop tomorrow for those who are interested in what my $130 got me...

    Er...what? But in any case, all the best for your first shaves. Read all you can and stay patient.

    The shaves will invariably improve the longer you stick with it. The Dovo Prima Klang is a great razor and you are getting a really good deal.

    Yes...no worries. I was simply saying that it is admirable to posses, as a trait, an unwillingness to compromise quality to save some effort. Those who wish to obtain quality without effort develop skill, which, in and of itself, requires effort. Not shunning effort takes character. Since nothing is absolute or certain, you cannot say that just taking the time to obtain the skill to achieve a superior shave or any other quality skill makes you a good person...but it certainly doesn't hurt.
