In times when many men use electric shavers to do wet shaving with a metal shaver or even resort to disposable plastic shavers, one should consider the many benefits of shaving with such high-quality razors as AP Donovan's Solingen razor to lead.
This razor is completely manufactured and assembled in Germany. The razor blade is made of non-stainless steel because it is even harder than stainless steel made by a supplier in Solingen. This is a razor blade that meets the highest demands. The handle itself is made of nickel silver with a mahogany wood insert. The handles are made directly at AP Donovan Manufaktur. For safekeeping, the purchase of a razor stand is recommended.
The width of the razor blade is traditionally measured in eighths of an inch. Usual widths are 3/8, 5/8, 6/8 and 7/8 inches, with 5/8 inches being the most common blade for bartrasur. Above all, the razor width has a major influence on their weight. In cross section, the razor resembles an inwardly bent triangle. The width of the blade also widens the base of the triangle, that is, the razor's back. This means that the wider 6/8 inch razor is also heavier than the 5/8 inch razor.
The use of a shaving brush when shaving with a razor is highly recommended, as only so that the shaving foam can be hot opened and applied to the face. The foam prepares the skin for shaving by opening the pores and pre-soaking the beard. AP Donovan uses high-quality badger hair, because it produces a particularly fine foam. The handle is also made of nickel silver with a handle of mahogany wood. In order for the shaving brush to remain functional for a long time and to dry out well, it should be stored suspended in a stand.
The high-quality, all-natural shaving soap comes in a metal tin, which greatly facilitates the beating of the shaving cream,
The AP Donovan Strop consists of a cowhide leather strap and an equally sized strip of sturdy linen on the back. The leather scraper or stripper is used to care for the razor and to maintain its sharpness. Due to the high load during a shave razor comes to material tensions and small cutting deformations. Therefore, you should always leave the razor after use, so that the material stresses can compensate again. Before the next use, it is then only with the strop to decay. So the microscopically fine ridge of the cutting edge can be raised again.
For semi-hollow and hollow razors, lapping on a hanging belt is recommended. For this purpose, the two-piece removal belt AP Donovan is hung on a door handle or hook and pulled smooth. The razor should then be placed completely with the cutting edge and the back, otherwise the cutting burr may break and pull in the direction of the blade back. For re-sharpening, the sturdy linen fabric on the back of the cowhide strop is intended when peeling off with leather straps no longer provides the desired sharpness. The fabric belt can be additionally provided with abrasive paste.
