Boker Straight Razor
 
At the end of the 19th century, especially extravagant Straight Razors were sold under the brand Boker Elite. We want to continue this tradition with this Straight Razor line. The handle scales are CNC milled from a block of the high-tech material carbon and the massive 6/8" blade has two bevels on the blade back. Delivered in historic packaging with certificate of authenticity.

Tradition meets the modern age. The 6/8 inch-blade made from carbon steel (especially good edge retention, non-stainless) looks especially attractive due to its combination of extra-fine hollow grind with two bevels on the blade back. The carbon handle scales give the knife additional sturdiness and ensure smooth use of the blade. This version with the popular Round Point is produced in 140 steps at the Boker Knife Manufacturer in Solingen.  

Like any other razor sold by The Classic Edge Shaving Store this razor is professionally honed to "shave ready" by Phil, we do this because the standard factory edge is not sharp enough to shave with out of the box. 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.

About Boker Manufaktur Solingen

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.

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 - 3 shaves before needing to strop. 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. If you intend to leave your razor unused for several days, oil the blade using a mineral oil to protect the surface from moisture and humidity. To maintain a sharp cutting edge, strop regularly prior to shaving.
