    The blade is loaded into a plastic sleeve and slipped into the razor. Removal is a little tricky since it is a tight fit and re-loading should also be done with some caution.

    Once in, you have a small and lightweight razor, not even 13cm in length but with the grippy handle it feel sure in the hand. Blade length is 60mm and like all these kind of shavettes, it scythes through stubble without issue for three, four or even five full shaves, two passes with the grain giving a very clean and smooth finish.

    If you are interested in shaving with one of these razors, check both eBay and Amazon since deals can be had - I got my razor with three packs of blades (which snap in half, so 60 blades in total) for literally peanuts from China.

    There is an underbelly to shaving ... a club, if you like ... and the first rule is ... :D

    Nah, it just flew by in the listings while I was looking for something else. You can find this on Amazon, or there's an other branded (or even unbranded) version here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321525287550 for a fiver.

    It just shows how we're getting taken for a ride in the West, what with the Dovo Shavette ... it's this. No way are those "made in Solingen". China, yes.
