I don't think this co. is going anywhere!
I have been watching this with interest as I really fancy a 6/8 Revisor. I currently use a vintage 4/8 with the same brand name....and it is great. However I have discovered....to my cost that modern versions do not always continue the tradition of quality (Think Timor here) Are the modern Revisors worth the cost?
~~~I like my Revisor 5/8 1/1 hollow quite a bit. Enough that some day down the road I'll order another, but the next one will be a 6/8, in fact, I was peering at their 6/8 page last night quite a bit. <sigh>, so many razors, so little cash <LOL>
Red or black, I like the simplicity of this (their) style of shoulderless blades. They have another that is more ornate yet taking care of the gold wash is a PITA
yes, this is the one http://www.revisor-solingen.de/html/6-8_47.html you can buy me for my birthday, or, if you hit the Lotto jackpot and you want to do something nice for Jake
I love the one with the red scales.
~~~you're right Rick, it's a great blade. That said, I like both of my Dovos, but the Dovos are both 6/8 so I can't really compare my Dovos to my one Revisor, but if pressed, I'd say these two companies make very good straight razors and we're fortunate that we're able to buy new razors from each of them, and I would definitely buy another new Dovo as well. I like Dovo blades. They work well for me, my skin and beard
I think you could however compare some things Jake on any "new" razor. What i would like to know is how easy is it to hone your Revisor compared to your Dovo? I find my Dovo crazy easy to put an edge on compared to some of my other razors. What about fit and finnish? My Dovo's finish absolutely bit chunks compared to say my Boker. So much so, that I have to re-scale it here one day, but I don't complain as it was an $80 razor! I feel like I got away with something every time I shave with it.
I can, I have a Dovo Bismark 6/8. It too is a great shaver but I'd have to give the edge () to the Revisor.
Hey Rick is a 6/8 really 6/8 or closer to 13/16 and 7/8?
It's very close to 7/8 Scott.
I thought they looked bigger than 6/8. Thanks
This is the revisor I bought http://www.revisor-solingen.de/html/6-8_35.html
It ended up costing 114.62 euros after shipping and paypal.
Oh and I just put the calipers on the razor and its 13/16.
