6/8" Blade Width
The blade is 6/8 of an inch, making it fairly comfortable to maneuver. It is also easy to gauge the correct amount of pressure to use, and to determine its location when shaving more difficult areas. 6/8" can be good for beginners, but is usually preferred by those looking to move up from the more common 5/8" width.
Half Hollow and Round Point
Being Half Hollow makes the blade lighter, and again easier to maneuver. There is more "give" from a half hollow blade, which means it will contour to the face a bit more than other grinds, allowing for a closer shave. The Round Point isn't as good for detailing, but is the most popular due to being more forgiving than other point types.
Carbon Steel Blade
This straight razor starts out as a forged, high-carbon steel blank that is then tempered to exact specifications for the perfect hardness. This ensures the blades durability and longevity. All Dovo straight razors come factory honed and hand sharpened, but some users may still require further stropping before use.
