While all razors are whetted and stropped at the Solingen factory and Dovo-Stahlwaren certifies each razor as ready to shave via several quality control checks, Dovo has authorized The Superior Shave to further hone your razor post-factory (to so-called 'Shave Ready' status). The choice is yours (allow +1 day handling time for 'further honed') . As a personal use tool designed for direct interaction with human tissue, razors which have had the factory seal breeched cannot be returned.
Straight razors require diligent care, as addressed upon the warranty card.
