The razor blade - its quality determines the thoroughness of the shave. The steel used for this razor is a particularly high quality alloy: Japanese tempered steel, similar to the Shiro Gami steel also known as white paper steel. This unalloyed carbon steel reaches a hardness of 63 Rockwell and enables the production of extremely sharp blades. When shaving, they convince by the very fine cutting angle of 15 to 20 degrees. Gentleness and thoroughness - two seemingly contradictory properties are inseparable in this blade steel. The lettering applied to the highly polished razor blade by means of gold etching guarantees you the skin-friendly thoroughness and long-lasting consistency of AP Donovan razors.
For the safe and comfortable handling of a razor, the material of the handle is of crucial importance. In order to balance the weight ratio of blade steel and handle, the handles must be made of a sufficiently heavy material. The black sandalwood used in this razor handle comes from the forests of India and is characterized by its heavy and very hard quality. In elaborate manual work, the material of the wooden handle enters into a fascinating connection with the blade steel. Sometimes the end result is just more than the sum of its parts. Underline your individual style with the masculine experience of a perfect shave. When it comes to male care, AP Donovan has everything under control.
stainless steel insert
The woods used in the manufacture of the handles make your razor a unique and unique piece . To emphasize this individual character of each individual piece, a small stainless steel insert is inserted into the wooden handle. The AP Donovan lettering on it stands as a quality mark for the exceptional quality and longevity of our products. For the love of detail - AP Donovan
Each razor by AP Donovan comes in a decorative wooden box . The noble character of the box is underlined by arabesque hole carvings in the lid and the finely worked metal clasp. A velor-coated foam insert inside reliably prevents scratches on the handle and blade of the razor. As a decorative eye-catcher in your bathroom or for safe transport on trips - this box will do your razor all the credit.
One of the most important prerequisites for a thorough and skin-friendly shave is the use of the right shaving cream. Good shaving cream is characterized by a fine-pored and creamy consistency. Barbers from earlier times would not have been impressed by shaving cream from the tin. Brushing the foam with a shaving brush was as much a part of their craft as the beard belongs to the man. Shaving brushes with silver badger bristles have always been regarded by experts as the ultimate. The foam that opens with them gets exactly the right texture and the skin feel when applying the foam is incomparably good. The higher price of silver roof bristles compared to shaving brushes with pig or plastic bristles will pay for itself quickly: A high-quality shaving brush will provide many years of faithful service with good care. To ensure that the handle of the brush remains attractive for a long time, the roof hairs are hand-crafted in noble sandalwood and stainless steel. The two natural materials enter into a visual and functional symbiosis that meets your high demands. Masculine and individual care of your own style - AP Donovan has the right tools for you.
Unlike razor sharpening, which should be done at normal intervals of several months, you must peel off the knife on the leather strap before each shave. In its function, the leather strap is most comparable to the peel of a cook who whets his knives daily. The blade edge of the razor, which is extremely thin on its cutting edge, is bent over by the whiskers in the micro region during shaving and forms a burr. This partially self-adjusts after shaving, but must be completely removed before shaving with the leather strap. A detailed and illustrated instructions for the correct removal of the knife can be found in our section "Customers Want Knowledge". The AP Donovan leather straps are made of high-quality Kazakh cow leather on one side and robust canvas fabric on the other side. The abrasive effect of the leather corresponds approximately to the 100,000 grit of a grindstone. You can securely attach one end of the strap to a suitable wall hook using the sturdy metal carabiner. The two metal rings at the other end give you a secure grip to tighten the strop. AP Donovan - professional equipment around the most masculine of all topics: shaving.
If the abrasive effect of the leather strap alone is insufficient to achieve the desired sharpness of the razor, you can use the supplied abrasive paste. The AP Donovan abrasive paste consists of several mineral constituents and microfine abrasive particles. It strengthens the abrasive effect of the leather belt by about two times and is comparable to a whetstone of 50,000 grit. If thoroughness matters: shaving accessories from AP Donovan.
When shaving with a razor , using a good shaving soap is a must. Canned foam is a real breakthrough in style and, moreover, its quality and consistency are not comparable to that of self-whipped foam. The shaving soap by AP Donovan is specially designed for use with our shaving brushes. An additional soap dish is not required - you can work with the shaving brush directly in the decorative aluminum can. Residues of foam remaining in the can form on their own with the lid closed and can be reused for the next shave. Thanks to this practical and economical method, the soap contained in the box is enough for many shaves. Fragrant and skin-friendly - in the production of soap AP Donovan consistently dispenses with silicone, phthalates and crude oil products. The herbal ingredients give you a naturally good skin feeling and are the basis for a particularly creamy foam. AP Donovan - masculine care with style and aspiration.
