Hmm. Zinc alloy head, brass handle. Seems a little bit pricey at €49.00. (USD$53.30)

They don't say how heavy it is, but the size looks okay. (length 410 mm)
The over-all appearance is nice.

I think it's a cheap option, in the Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 / Muhle Rocca range.

The English Shaving Company Wrote:DOVO have taken more than a century of shaving knowledge and condensed this into two years of development to produce the PRIMO I safety razor.
The name PRIMO means "at the beginning" and PRIMO stands for a new beginning. A new beginning for you, the wet shaver.
Made in Germany, the Primo I safety razor is a closed comb, straight cut, three-piece design. A safety razor with a closed comb is a all-rounder for classic wet shaving. You will intuitively feel the correct angle of your razor and be able to admire the best shaving results immediately. The generous blade gap enables high soap flow and so protects the razor head from clogging with cut hair or foam residue.
The head of the razor is manufactured using the zinc die-casting process, which allows for very precise manufacturing tolerances and complex shapes. In order to ensure a pleasant weight distribution, the handle is made from brass. The chrome finish protects the shaver from corrosion and underlines the high-quality design.

Dimensions: 4.1cm x 2.5cm x 10.6cm

Not easy frankenrazors here, swapping the handle.

the retail on those two razors are typically $100+, are you sure those are good comps?

Dovo owns Merkur. Thus, it is difficult to tell if the Primo razor is significantly different than similar Merkur razors. The head design of the Primo razor appears to be similar to some Merkur razors and competing offerings from companies such as Muhle and Edwin Jager. The Primo razor might well be made in the Merkur factory with Dovo branding. That is not necessarily a bad thing as many people love Merkur razors. Just make sure you are not paying a premium for a box with Dovo printing on the sides,

Oh, that. 
I was looking at the model for T-Rex and other short-armed creatures.

Maybe. Or not.
That price tag is difficult in EU.
BTW, who cares. The razor looks nice.
