Are you looking for a new razor in top quality? Then you should opt for one of the models made in Solingen. Already since the year 1869 in the "Klingenstadt" absolutely high-quality razors are manufactured from the best materials. The production of blades goes back even further: Already in the year 1363 began in the traditional city with the blade production. These are not in vain considered the best razors in the world. The razor Solingen 5/8 with gold etching by AP Donovan is one of the best models ever, which is also ideal as a gift idea.
But why choose a razor made in Solingen? Quite simply, the so-called Solingen regulation guarantees that only high-quality materials are used for the knives. The blades from Germany's best tool factory are all provided with an official seal of approval. Solingen made blades are still characterized by their hardness. The protected brand name Solingen may only be used with blades that have a minimum hardness of 58 HRC. The non-razor razor Solingen 5/8 even has a hardness of 64 HRC. Another advantage of the Solingen 5/8 razor with gold etch is that it is made of non-stainless steel. This variant achieves a significantly higher sharpness than a stainless razor. However, you should know that razors made of stainless steel require more intensive care than the stainless version. After each use, you should first clean the razor thoroughly with water, then disinfect and dry well. In addition, create special blade oil with which you can care for your razor. Also, be sure to keep the razor in a well-ventilated place, otherwise it would quickly rust.
Unlike the razor with interchangeable blades, the razor has only a single sharp blade. This does not have to be replaced, but should be reground regularly. If you decide to use the razor Solingen 5/8 with gold etching, you should first get used to the handling. The clear advantage of the razor blade is that the sharp blade has an extremely long life compared to the ordinary razor. Also save yourself the purchase of exchangeable blades. Not to mention the high-quality mahogany wood from the forests of Madagascar. This is a very heavy type of wood. Blade and handle form a balanced weight ratio, so that the knife is balanced when shaving in the hand. The shaving movements can be done quite precisely.
The razor Solingen 5/8 with gold etching is manufactured and assembled exclusively for you in Germany. As already mentioned, it is a blade made in Solingen. The nickel silver handle is manufactured by AP Donovan Manufaktur. Housed is the razor in an elegant storage box, which was also made of mahogany wood. The highlight here are the fine hole carvings on top of the box. Of course, this is lined with foam, so you do not have to worry about scratches on your razor. The box is not only great as a gift idea, you can also use it as a travel case.
But the storage box is not the only accessory that comes with the razor. At the same time you will receive a strop to wear off. This should be used before each shave: The strop ensures that the so-called burr rests on the blade and the knife stays sharp. For a perfect shave, you should, however, purchase additional accessories: These include a sharpening stone sharpening stone as well as a special care oil. Continue to choose not only for a high-quality shaving foam that is tailored to your skin type, but also for a shaving brush. Badger hair brushes are especially recommended and gentle on the skin. Foam your face thoroughly before you start shaving. Incidentally, a good alternative to shaving cream is a herbal shaving soap that optimally swells the beard hair. If you do not want to store your AP Donovan razor in the supplied box, you can optionally purchase a razor stand. With razors with interchangeable blades or even an electric razor the razor Solingen 5/8 with gold etching is hardly comparable. You will be amazed how accurate you can shave from now on. But that's not all: In addition to the 100 percent satisfactory razor result you also benefit from significantly less skin irritation.
