This razor is new from Boker and has a Damascus steel blade and contemporary stabilized curly birch scales. Damascus is the name of a type of steel that was very popular in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age. It was named after the Syrian city of Damascus, a former trade a former trade center for knives and swords with this type of blade. Damascus is a composite steel, i.e. a steel made from two or more steel bases with different characteristics. The finished product has a clearly visible texture of alternating layers of its base materials and is appreciated for its decorative appearance.

The scales are made from the wood of the burl birch. This is a special variety of the silver birch which is native to the far north of Europe. The tree has a genetic defect that causes the tree to twist on the stem with curls. This means the wood has an interesting grain which has a V shape in cross section that is highly decorative. The scales have the Boker emblem inlaid by hand.

The 6/8 blade has a French point, the scales have the authentic Boker logo on the tang, and the razor has jimping on the upper and lower tang. It is supplied in a clear display case with a Certificate of Authenticity. This razor is numbered 165.

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.
