Boker King Cutter Straight Razor 5/8, Black

The Boker King Cutter Straight Razor 5/8, Black Full Hollow Ground is one of the most well known straight razors in history, and without question value.  An amazing performer that takes on a great edge that is easy to maintain.  Perfect to get started in the World of Wet Shaving.

Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store, this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil. This $25 Value is our way of showing you that we are willing to take our Customer Service to the next level. After all, nothing is worse than buying a Straight Razor as a gift for a loved one, only for them to open the box and realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it. Also included is a free follow up honing that can be used once your razor is in need of a fresh edge.

Please allow a minimum of at least 3-4 business days for us to prepare your Straight Razor, as this is not a product that you buy just anywhere. It needs special attention to detail as it will come in contact with your skin, and must be sanitized and polished before being coated with Renaissance Wax. This careful and considerate attention to each razor is the difference between a shaving store that will rush your razor out the next morning, and our own Artisan-owned shaving store that is nothing less than extreme when it comes to making their clients 100% satisfied. It's our job to ensure that your experience is perfect. We cannot thank you enough for visiting our website, and we hope you have a great day.

Note: When you receive the razor for the first time, carefully take it out of the box and remove the oil with a piece of tissue. The razor has already been stropped and it completely "Shave Ready", so go ahead and shave! You will get 2 shaves before needing to strop (depending on how aggressive your beard growth is. Each time you have used your razor, rinse the blade with hot tap water. Carefully and thoroughly dry the blade and in between the scales with a piece of tissue paper before you close it. We recommend to oil your razor after every use. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.

Can't put enough words to describe how amazing this razor is. It truly looks and feels high quality.

Just received and shaved with it. Damn ! What a shave ! Never had such a good shave in my entire LIFE ! The razor is REALLY sharp, it's perfect. The shaving was really smooth, didn't felt a thing. Now my skin is baby smooth. Plus it came with an hand written note, some shaving cream, a 1 Ounce bottle of oil for my razor and a "Complimentary Sharpening for one Straight Razor". Really neat. Definitely going to make my future shaving purchases here. Thanks Phil and Jane !

A great price for a great razor. It has an extra full hollow grind and gives great audible feedback while shaving. Boker's high carbon steel holds and fantastic edge and seldom needs honing. Just a good stropping and your whiskers don't stand a chance. It's an excellent quality blade and its never been as sharp as it was when I first received it from The Classic Edge. Thanks for everything Phil and Jane.

Sad I couldn't put 10 stars!!
Pretty new to straight razor shaving and now I know what means 'Shave Ready'. . .
Bought my first razor few months ago. Had an argument with the guy at the store here who sold it to me because he was telling me this Thiers-Issard (Sonnant Extra) was 'shave ready' from the factory abut now I know it wasn't!
Phil and Jane showed me what is 'Shave Ready' with this Boker, never had a good shaving feeling like this.
They take great pride in what they are doing and it shows!!
Thank you Classic Edge, you are now my supplier of choice for ALL my shaving needs!
