Founded in 1906 by Mr. Dorp and Mr. Voos, DOVO was purely a factory producing straight razors, with a forge and hollow grinding shop. As Mr. Dorp and Mr. Voos retired, Fritz Bracht took over the DOVO company shortly before the second World War. Because of the introduction of the electric razor, Fritz Bracht had to create a second source of income by producing hair scissors. So a hair and thinning scissors with a curved cutting edge were made. Now, DOVO has taken over many brand and companies and has sold many products such as razors, scissors, and shaving equipment.
