Boker The Celebrated Wenge 6/8 Straight Razor

A phenomenally crafted reissue of one of the most famous models in the long history of the Boker Straight Razor! Featuring themselves in the 1906 catalog of Boker USA, especially high quality models were often called The Celebrated. Each of these incredible razors are constructed from high-quality wood harvested from the Wenge, an African fine wood. The resulting handle showcases its own extraordinary pattern, giving each razor a unique and individual appearance.  

The Celebrated Wenge boasts an impressive 6/8 inch blade, laboriously made from carbon steel, and harmonizes wonderfully with its straight spine and polished faceted point. Each of these extraordinary models adorn their handle with with a carefully crafted Boker tree emblem. The blade is ground extra hollow with ridge. Handmade in the Böker Knife Manufactory in Solingen, each razor includes an authentic Böker stamp in the blade passage, a certificate of authenticity, and historical packaging.

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.
