Looking to trim the den a bit.  Prices include CONUS shipping.

AOS dark Grenadille wood scales 5/8 blade
Retails for $295 (way inflated). It is made by DOVO. The nicer Dovo's with wood handles retail for $150-160. This one has the really nice gold wash on the spine. I traded about $100 for it. Asking $85  shipped. Now $75 



Boker Edelweiss bone scales 5/8 blade

Retails for $129. I would ask $65 SOLD

I have recently shaved with both of these. They still shave great. However since they have a approx. 20 shaves on them since they were honed. They could both be honed to freshen up the edge. [Image: aHDsv6N.jpg]

I'm brand new to straights.  Bought a virtually new, inexpensive Dovo for a great price, and have shaved with it once.  I'm planning on a journey down that rabbit hole soon.  They both look beautiful, and I'm considering pulling the trigger on one as a second straight.  Any thoughts, comments or insights on either razor?

I'm pretty new myself. Only recommendation would be something different than your Dovo. Type of point, blade width, or manufacturer. without knowing your Dovos specs, it would be difficult to offer more commments or recommendations. I would highly suggest sending them out to be honed by a professional.
