    Troll?

    Anyway thanks all for the responses, if nothing else it delivered a good debate. Expectations were obviously far too high, end of story!

    The Dovo special is also my first new straight razor (I own 5 or 6 vintage ones) and I too must say that I was disappointed with it at first. But when it was properly honed and stropped it is a great shaver. The prices of all new razors are high, but if you consider that you're getting a Swedish steel razor here my only complain is the look of the scales.. Which you can change eventually

    Yup, glad this guy only posted 4 times. From my understanding, dovo has great razors, to compare a knifes weight to a razor in means of quality is just moronic.... and I thought people like a light scale. Especially if the blade is light. No one likes the blade pulliń from your face and cramping the hand right? He can say they look cheap. But yea, you're not buying pearl here buddy. Geesh. I love all razors for what they are. Unless they are modern fakes than they are not really 'razors' anyways. Tisk tisk. Some people just don't have the true passion for it I guess.

    No harm in asking questions, especially when you are uncertain. No question is useless, only to the ignorant.
    What if I told you we prearranged to meet here now?

    I think people much rather appreciate a new thread to a necroposted crusty old one.
