A razor from the AP Donovan manufactory goes through a variety of manufacturing steps before it arrives razor-sharp at your home. Particular attention is paid to the manufacture of the knife blade, the heart of a razor blade. The thoroughness of wet shaving depends largely on their quality. Especially beginners in the world of wet shaving with a razor benefit from good tools. Anyone who makes bad experiences with a blunt blade right from the first shave attempts will quickly resort to their familiar system shaver or electric shaver. For that reason, buying a razor should be well considered - in the best case it is an acquisition for your entire life.
Therefore, the production of an AP Donovan razor blade uses only Japanese carbon steel. With a hardness of 63 Rockwell (HRC), it offers ideal conditions for the production of extremely sharp blades, which really deserve the predicate "Razor sharp". The professionals of our manufactory recognize this sharpness in the sound, which arises when one runs with the thumb across the blade. This test method is only possible through many years of experience and love of craftsmanship. Before the final quality check can be performed, the razor blade is ground in minute fine work and finally peeled off on the leather belt.
While the sharpness of the blade is a must, the optical finish of the razor is part of the freestyle. Of course, a cheaper razor with plastic handle shaved just as thoroughly as a specimen with handle scales made of precious wood. However, if you are looking for a real eyecatcher for your bathroom, you are on the safe side with a mahogany or sandalwood razor. When shiny steel and precious woods form a perfect symbiosis, the end result is greater than the sum of its parts. Razor from AP Donovan Manufaktur - if it should be high quality and beautiful.
