• Boker 5/8 Damascus straight Razor with blonde horn scales

Boker Damascus 5/8 Razor No. 059

£465.00

This 5/8 Damascus steel straight razor is a relatively new model from H. Boker & Co. The blade is hand made by Boker in Solingen following a process with 150 steps. The blade is forged from Swedish stainless steel with 180 individual layers, ground to form an extra hollow blade with a concave or Spanish point. This makes it well suited to shaving precise edges and contouring. This particular example has horn scales the colour of which varies from a gold/yellow colour through to darker browns at the pivot pin. The razor has a third pivot pin for stability. It is supplied in a special presentation box as shown and each of these razors bears a unique serial number on the tang, in this case number 059. A great addition to any collection. The images are of the actual razor for sale.

The exact patterning of Damascus razors varies from one razor to another. The method of manufacture employed by Boker results in a fairly regular pattern. If seeking greater variation, it is worth looking at the Damascus razors produced by Thiers-Issard.

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.
