Since the beginning of the Boker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors were produced in Solingen, Germany. At that time, Boker was already focused on the usage of nothing less than the best in materials, and it was of the utmost importance to maintain the highest production standards available. With that background, the success came quickly, and this gave Boker straight razors an impeccable international reputation. After World War II, the manufacturing of straight razors gradually came to a stop. Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in Boker's archives about the razor blade product line of that time. More than 100 years later, a new lineup is being manufactured in Solingen, reviving the old tradition. Through 170 individual production steps, the new and exclusive Boker straight razors are created. A guarantor for the highest quality is the successful "finger nail test." Only the edge of a perfectly ground blade can be visibly bent on your thumbnail and returns immediately to its original shape when released. Cheap blades are too thick to do this, and for that reason they are referred to as "axes" by the experts.
We are proud to present this straight razor to the market. With this razor, we close the gap and offer a premium quality straight razor for an extremely affordable price - made in the Solingen, Germany facility. This piece is manufactured with a keen eye for each and every small detail. The blade is made of a special alloy, containing silver, for improved cutting capabilities. This model features a distinctive, genuine white bone handle. Blade: 5/8". Made in Solingen, Germany.
We include in the price of each razor professional sharpening, shave tested and disinfected. We have also placed a thin coat of Camellia Oil over the blade to protect it. When you receive the razor, all you need to do is wipe off the oil and it is ready to shave the first time without stropping. An initial stropping can also be done if you prefer.
