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“. Choose your piece from the images of our actual inventory, and that’s the precise brush you’ll get – it’s like receiving intensely individual service for a $$$$ precious gemstone, but upon a ~$70 item instead due to a vendor begging you on their knees to buy!
Spiffy new-for-2022 DOVO embossed branding is present both upon the base and on the main conical body of the brush.
Dovo’s pure badger hair is employed here, the same quality as the 918052 and 918118 models, and in fact I believe precisely the same knots. 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 akin to ‘only badger’ or ‘all badger’ or ‘clean badger’, not the way the Brits’ term means to denote an entry level cheapest of badger fur. This is decidedly a middle grade, step up in quality, from any English brush bearing ‘Pure Badger’ nomenclaature.
