The Dovo beard scissors model no. 43 “Moustache” was a precision 4.5″ scissor for beard and mustache trimming. Its extremely-finely-serrated cutting edge and high quality drop forged steel endures exposure to tough, barbed-wire beard hair without wearing out quickly. Essentially you use the final centimeter of scissoring motion to make the cuts, and that is where this scissor – born to the task – really shines.
Sadly, in 2020 Dovo-Stahlwaren discontinued own-production of all scissors, and what you see in this listing is the last of our stock of their original own-production pieces (a new ‘Moustache’ will emerge bearing the DOVO name, but is no longer an own-production item, at this time Dovo’s production is limited to a reduced selection of nonetheless-wholly-own-production shaving brushes, the Merkur lineup [only excluding the DE blades which are not own-production], and of course forged straight razors and “Shavette” razors).
Three finishes were available; this original #43450 finger-rest-free model with nickel-plated carbon steel, the Oxidized #43454, and the stainless steel #43456. All had identical cutting capacity. All were discontinued in 2020 when Dovo decided to focus solely on their shaving implements for their own-production lineup.
This is a carbon steel tool, which means you must dry thoroughly after each use, store in a dry place, and lightly oil with non-food oil any time local humidity could exceed 35%.
