Boker King Cutter 5/8 Straight Razor Set

For Beginners and for anyone wanting to buy that special man the Perfect Shaving Set! I created this to help simplify the task of getting started into the World of Straight Razor Shaving. Everything you need is here and everything chosen is good quality products that will last a lifetime with care.

Easily in the top 3 best razors for the money, PERIOD. King Cutters are a dream to hone and give a shave that is closest to perfect as modern day razors get. For a Limited Time Offer, this duo set at a Special Price is the right choice! The Boker King Cutter Straight Razor is one of the most popular Straight Razors in the shaving world. Made by Boker Solingen in Germany, this Full Hollow Ground blade made of Carbon Steel, shaves like a dream. Matched with wear-resistant, durable black synthetic handles, they will last for years. This piece is made with a keen eye for each and every small detail. The popular shape of the razor is called "King Cutter," also known as a "Round point. You may see some websites stating it is a Spanish Point but this is incorrect. Hand-ground and assembled by Boker's expert craftsmen, the workmanship is truly something to cherish.

Included in this set is our NEW 3" Corium Leather Board Strop, which is easily the best choice for your first strop as it is a 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.

For the shaving brush we have The Classic Edge Brand Ebony Pure Badger Shaving Brush, which is our most popular brush by a landslide. Please remember to use the Brush Acrylic Stand that we include as it is very important to hang your brush to dry after each use! Doing this will help the brush last for years to come.

For the soap, we have included the Classic Edge Shaving Cream which is our best seller and our most recommended shaving cream!  Made in England, you won't be disappointed with this high quality English soap. Not only does it lather like a champ, but it smells absolutely delicious! Just to point out, the Classic Edge Shaving Creams contains no parabens making it suitable for sensitive skin! Comes in 3 different scents: Bay Rum, Charcoal and Citrus

*NOTE: When you checkout, please state in the comment section which shaving cream you would like, otherwise we can choose one for you. They all smell great!*

FREE GIFT: A very important addition to this set is the 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. Also remember our "No questions asked" return policy. At The Classic Edge you are what counts, because without you there would be no Classic Edge!   Straight Razor orders are special compared to other orders, which is why we ask that you wait at least an extra 2 - 4 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!
