Dovo Scissors

Solingen - a prominent place

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 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", which is now seen to be equivalent to EU guidelines, distinguishes between so-called hot-forged and cold-forged scissors.

Cold-forged scissors are of very poor quality and include the cheap scissors sold on the market in large quantities. They are made of steel wire which has been cut to length and placed under high pressure without heating, and are mostly only held together with a simple rivet. These scissors do not bear the Solingen mark of quality.

Dovo neither manufacture nor offer scissors of this type. Up tp 165 production steps (and only a few of those are made by a machine) are necessary to manufacture DOVO scissors and they are done at the factory that was established in 1906. From raw material that DOVO gets from a Solingen forge, to the finished scissor, it goes through many hands of skilled craftsmen. Most of the work is done by hand, as it was at the beginning of the last century. The workers are trained for several years until they achieve the skill necessary to create and finish a perfect cutting tool that the user will enjoy for a long time. More than 90% of Dovo's scissors, which are largely produced manually, are hot-forged. The materials used in their manufacture include the tried-and-tested carbon steel categories C45 and C60; however, more than half of them are manufactured from non-corrosive stainless steel including at least 13% chromium and 0.46% carbon. In some cases, special alloys with a higher proportion of chromium or molybdenum are used.

The "Solingen quality" is a minimum requirement for Dovo, which is fulfilled by Dovo's entire product range. The endeavour to improve on this quality is Dovo's most important precept!

The best high quality scissors offered by specialized dealers worldwide are made by the DOVO factory in Solingen, Germany.
