The Celebrated Curly Birch Razor from Boker is part of a series which includes The Celebrated Wenge. This time the scales are made from a wood called curly birch, which is similar to silver birch but which has a genetic defect that causes the tree to twist on the stem with curls. It is a dense and robust wood which means it is particularly suitable for knife handles and in this case razor scales.
The scales have a contemporary shape and are inlaid with the Boker tree logo in a bronze colour on a black background. The 6/8 satin finish carbon blade is plain as is the angular spine although there is jimping to the upper side. The square nose is set off by the faceted point to the spine. All in all a stunningly simple design and ideal for any customer seeking a razor with a natural look.
Although Boker identify this as a 6/8, the blade is large and measure 7/8 inches from edge to top of the spine.
As with all natural products, the graining and appearance will vary from one razor to another.
