Description

From a series of commemorative razors, this magnificent razor must be one of the highlights. The Boker Graf Engelbert is a square point razor with 7/8 blade, a mirror finish and embellished with 24 carat gold. The spine has a scalloped shape to it while there are jimps to both the upper and lower tang. The blade has an extra hollow grind with a blade stabiliser to provide rigidity. Images are of the actual razor for sale which is individually stamped with its unique serial number (508) and comes in a presentation box.

Near Boker’s headquarters lies the castle Burg an der Wupper. The castle is one of the largest in western Germany and the largest reconstructed castle in North Rhine-Westphalia. The famous history of Castle Burg is inseparably linked to the Duchy Berg and the Counts von Berg (Haus Berg 1068-1225). Boker are producing a series of straight razors dedicated to three historical Counts. This razor depicts the last Count von Berg, Engelbert II and represents him in his role as Archbishop of Cologne.

The scales are of horn (stag horn we think) and have a centre pin which provides additional stability.

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.
