For Beginners and for anyone wanting to buy that special man the Perfect Starter Shaving Set!
The Boker Classic 5/8 Round Spanish Blade is a simple good quality razor from Germany that is perfect for someone new to Straight Razor Shaving or even experienced shavers who want a New good quality razor. The blade is made from carbon steel (high edge-holding, non-stainless) and has a pronounced hollow grind with wall. Grip scales made from moisture-resistant specialty plastics. Fully handcrafted in the Solingen-based Boker Manufactory Includes authentic Boker embossing on the blade joint. Comes with an authenticity certificate in historical packaging.
With any good quality razor, a strop is needed to keep your razor "Shave Ready", so we have included our NEW 3" Wide Corium Board Strop which is easily the best choice for your first strop as it is simple yet VERY effective way to strop your straight razor. By using a board strop, it takes the learning curve out of stropping. Everyone cuts or nicks their first strop when learning, which is why we recommend a less expensive option the first time through. Keep in mind that less expensive doesn't mean less quality. Made with the smoothest leather available with amazing feedback and it's the same high quality leather "The Professional" is made from.
COMPLIMENTARY GIFT: A very important addition to this set is the Travel Straight Razor Oil or Paraffin Oil, which should be used after every shave to protect your Carbon Steel Razor. Just a couple of drops per side is enough to cover the entire blade and tang. Remember to oil the pivot pin once a month to stop oxidation before it happens.
As a small family run business, we take great pride not only in our Customer Service but our Craftsmanship. What sets us apart from other shaving stores? Other vendors state that their razors are "Shave Ready" when in fact they are not. We professionally sharpen each razor with a progression of 3K to 12K followed by extremely low Micron abrasives like Iron Oxide, Chromium Oxide and Diamond. Imagine that you ask the store if they use Chromium Oxide and they answer "What is that?". Time to look elsewhere! Also included is a FREE follow up honing, now this is NOT a gimmick to sell razors...This is our way to get you to continue to use your razor, because if you continue to use your razor there is the future possibility that you will make purchases from us again. It's a mutual friendship and our job is to help you on your journey to becoming an experienced Straight Razor Shaver. Straight Razor orders are special compared to other orders, which is why we ask that you wait at least an extra 2 - 3 days for us to prepare your razor. This is not something you want rushed, as there are many more steps involved in making sure your razor is not only "Crazy Sharp" but also 100% Bacteria FREE! Would you rather buy from a store that ships out the same day and get a razor that was not sanitized and sharpened? Nothing is worse than receiving a Straight Razor as a gift and then finding out that you have to send it away to be sharpened for $30 plus shipping! We cannot thank you enough for visiting our online store and hope you have a wonderful day!
