The Dovo “Coupe Souple” 200-506 is a classically-styled 5″ stainless shear, made to a professional standard and produced unchanged for
many decades. Its 35° cutting angle is Dovo’s standard for their traditional models, and its inner blade planes are flat ground (not hollow ground);
these design choices provide it a finer cutting action versus their popular corrugated-style ‘Catch Cut’ shears and makes resharpening quick and easy (this is an ideal choice to keep running with a coticule slurry stone, but your local sharpener-for-hire can likely have no problems
touching up this standard type ‘beveled’ shear)
Coupe Souple does NOT offer the lighter cutting action of Dovo
razor-type edge shears with hollow ground and honed inner blade planes such as ‘Elitaire’ or ‘Senso Cut’, nor their ability to do slice cuts, but it is a more durable shear and typically found to be less challenging to use for beginners.
Screw-in Finger Rest
Adjustable center screw (tool required)
Conventionally ground blade surfaces

NO RETURNS, EXCHANGES, OR CLAIMS OF DEFECT ACCEPTED FOR ANY PURCHASE OF DOVO SHEARS. These shears come with a 2-year guarantee against any manufacturing defect, and you will need to contact Dovo to return to Germany if this arises. We have never seen it occur, but if your copy of shears did turn out to have a defect in which Dovo (making hairdressing scissors since before the Cold War) agreed the item was defective, we will compensate you for your expenses of mailing to Germany (Dovo will pay for your return shipping). “Shears Defect Claim Fraud” is a rampant scourge within the market of hairdressers purchasing professional hairdressing scissors, as professional hairdressers seem to think that these things are like a library, try and return until you find your one true love…Ottoman Empire sultans were less particular about their concubines than is a professional hairdresser about their shears. This fraud is reflected in the much-too-high price you’ll pay because the ‘defective’ returned shears cannot be resold, lots of wasted postage/parcel, etc.. At this shop, however, 1) you will NEVER receive a shear used by anyone (let’s be honest, we all know that’s happening if you can return shears somewhere!), 2) you will NEVER be able to circumvent the policy to get your money back with the text that’s now assigned to the add-to-cart button itself, & 3) you will pay a much lower price because you are subsidizing the fraud of others. After mailing many of these ‘defective’ pieces back to Dovo over the years and getting the unchanged shears along with a preprinted form letter stating “we have examined this item very carefully and find nothing out of specification”, we will no longer humor this stuff – there’s plenty of places you can buy these shears (and pay more, obviously) if you’d like to play that ‘defective’ card to try-and-return.
