£202.50

Boker have produced a new version of their Schildpatt or faux tortoiseshell razor. As before it has a 6/8 satin finished carbon steel blade and gold detailing, but this version has been given a modern twist with a square point and contemporary styling to the scales.   These are inlaid with the gold coloured Boker tree and are of cellulose acetate patterned to replicate tortoiseshell – so no tortoises were harmed in the manufacture of this razor!  The large blade bears the mark ” Premium Selection ” around a turtle emblem. The blade has a thumb notch and jimping to the upper tang. All in all this is amounts to a very stylish and successful reinvention of a traditional classic. Although identified by Boker as a 6/8, the blade actally measures 7/8 from edge to the top of the spine.

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.
