Boker can trace its origins to the 17th century as a tool maker in Germany which graduated to swords and blades by the 1800s and which has been manufacturing razors since 1869. Since the Second World War, when the original factory was destroyed, significant investments in staff and technology mean that Boker have become a worldwide leader in the production of high quality razors using only the finest materials with every razor being made by hand through some 170 individual production steps. Skilled master craftsmen produce a blade that is extremely flexible. The edge can be visibly bent on your thumbnail and returns to its original shape when released, meaning they adapt very well to the contours of the face but are sufficiently strong to give many years of use. The Boker trademark tree can be traced back to a chestnut tree which stood by the original factory all those years ago.
