Description

You’ll have to agree this new razor from Boker is a stunning piece of workmanship. It has a carbon 6/8 blade with a french point beautifully etched in black with an historic design first used by Boker at the beginning of the 20th Century for their luxury razors. The blade has an extra hollow grind with blade stabiliser. This stabiliser makes it possible to grind the blade so that it is extremely thin, but such that it still gives the blade enough stiffness, whilst still retaining its elasticity. It has jimping to the upper and lower tang and is finished with a plain spine.

The scales are made from abalone which is a natural material made from the shells of sea molluscs which are found off the coast of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Mexico and South Africa. Today, the precious natural product is raised in water farms. The beautiful shells with their almost artificial looking shimmer have always been used as decoration. Boker use cutting-edge production methods, applying a wafer-thin layer to a carrier which is then encased in transparent acrylic. The result is a durable material which has an exquisite semi translucent sheen and an amazing turquoise colour. Altogether an exquisite razor to add to any collection.

Comes in a display case and with a certificate of authenticity.

Boker Straight Razors

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.

Boker Shaving Accessories

Our range of Boker cut-throat razors are complemented by a select range of men's shaving accessories including Boker shaving soap, shave brushes and a straight razor stand as well as the Boker Arbolito manicure sets.
