I'm looking to try a Dovo Shavette as a first straight razor for me. I've been shaving with a safety razor for about a year, and I've learned what DE blades I like (using IPs now -- never any burn, but I've got a pile of Merkurs going untouched).
For the Dovo Shavette, what's the best way to split the DE blade in half for use? I don't want to apply any pressure that's going to modify (bend, ding, whatever) one of the cutting edges, and I *really* don't want to cut myself. But I do want to try using a half DE rather than invest in a pile of single edge blades to start with.
Your advice is sought! Thank you!
