The Dovo 918106 is a badger brush with an olivewood handle, perfectly matched to their other various olivewood razors (as they use the same exact supplier for the blanks) “Barbarossa“, “Diamant“, and “INOX“.
Their base-level pure badger hair is present here, which is matched in quality to the 918052 and 918118 models. These knots are entirely hand-formed by the craftspeople in Dovo’s own Solingen, Germany factory, and then set into their handles by machine. As with a normal brush, the handle’s flat base can stand on a tabletop (the Merkur brush 1701 matched to the Futur must use a stand).
The typical German version of ‘pure badger’ is *NOT* as scratchy as Simpsons, for example; for the $, if I had a 415875 or ‘Diamant‘ Dovo str8rzr, I don’t think I could pass it up. What it means in German is more like ‘only badger’ or ‘all badger’ or ‘clean badger’, not the way the Brits term means.
