Boker Straight Razor

The universal size of 5/8" meets all demands and shaving habits and is made from carbon steel. The very elaborately worked handles are milled from the full material in the Boker Manufactory Solingen and look deceptively similar to the real natural materials. The nickel silver inlays underline the elaborate production and refinement of the handles and blades in manual labor.

The ground and polished shells of the pearl shells used to be a common currency and have been used in the production of jewelry for a long time. In contrast to the natural material, the imitation mother of pearl handles are very robust and harmonize beautifully with the partial gilding and the decoration of the blade backs. Incl. certificate of authenticity and historic packaging. 

Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil. This $35 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 and when they open the box realize that they now have to send it away to be sharpened before they can use it. Also included is a follow up honing that can be used once your razor is in need of a fresh edge.

Please allow a minimum of at least 2 - 3 business days for us to prepare your Straight Razor, as this is not just 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, followed by a coating of Renaissance Wax. Would you rather a shaving store that will rush your razor out the next morning or a Artisan owned shaving store that is extreme when it comes to making their clients 100% satisfied.  It's our job to insure your experience is perfect, and if not perfect it's our job to correct any mistakes as soon as possible.  We cannot thank you enough for visiting our website and hope you have a great day. 

Note: When you receive the razor for the first time 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 aggresive your beard grow 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.

About Boker:

Since the beginning of the Boker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors were produced in Solingen, Germany. At that time, they were 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 our 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 refered to as "axes" by the experts.
