(Limited to Block, Contemporary or Futura fonts up to 20 characters)
in 1906, the company DOVO Steelware of Solingen, Germany was originally purely
a factory producing straight razors, with a forge and hollow grinding shop
employing thirteen workers. The name DOVO derives from the names of the
founders of the company, Mr. Dorp and Mr. Voos. As a mark of German
craftsmanship, the name "Solingen" enjoys the confidence of the whole
world. In order to keep this trust and with it the reputation of the Solingen cutting
tools, and to prevent misuse of this name, the German government passed a law
in 1938 to protect the name of Solingen. The law makes stipulations relating to
the geography of the production area with the intention of protecting regional
industry. If an article is manufactured in Solingen but the raw materials, i.e.
the blanks are produced elsewhere, the article may not bear the Solingen name.
The law "for the protection of the name of Solingen", distinguishes
between so-called hot-forged and the cold-forged items, which do not bear the
Solingen mark of quality.
The name Dovo of Solingen, has therefore become synonymous with the Dovo
quality standard of German engineering and the hot forged steel processes still
used in production of the fine shaving razors
