The castle Burg an der Wupper which is one of the largest castles in western Germany, can be found not far from the Boker factory in Solingen, and is the home of the Berg Duchy. The design on this razor symbolizes the death of Adolf III Count von Berg during the fifth crusade in Egypt.

The strop from our Custom Range is not included nor is our own Invisible Edge Faux Horn brush. These are shown for illustrative purposes only but are available elsewhere on the site – IE140017 and IE10029.

SHAVE READY – Unlike some retailers, our razors are not supplied as they come from the factory. We individually prepare all the razors we sell. For full details see our policy.

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.
