Böker Solingen

Boker Damascus Ebony 6/8 Straight Razor

The dark colour and fine grain of the precious wood featured on this razor emphasizes the elegance and noble appearance of this unique piece of craftsmanship. The valuable, certified imported ebony is extremely robust thanks to its high density and has a high resistance to ageing; making it a preferred choice not only for its aesthetic appeal, but for practical long-term use. As an additional decoration, the historical Boker tree emblem is expertly inserted into the handle, a touch of classic craftsmanship that is rarely found nowadays. The tang features a serration on both sides. The blade is ground extra hollow with ridge. With authentic Boker laser engraving in the blade passage, certificate of authenticity and noble floating display. Handmade in the Boker knife manufactory Solingen.

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 2-3 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.
