Boker 6/8 Pearl Tang Razor

£255.00

We are pleased to be able to offer this new razor from Boker. It's unusual feature is the mother of pearl inlay on both sides of the tang. Many straight razors of yesteryear did have special features like this, indeed Boker's catalogue of 1906 offered many razors with a pearl tang, but this aesthetic approach has fallen by the wayside in modern times. Boker have decided to re-introduce it and have produced this beautiful razor which also has a polished 6/8 carbon blade with a square point and a stunning laser engraved spine and bog oak scales. The blade is an unmarked satin finish with extra hollow grind.

The pearl tang is made by affixing two thin pieces of mother of pearl to the tapered tang and expertly sanding each piece until it fits the tang seamlessly. not an easy task when you consider the sizes of the pieces involved!

The scales are made from bog oak. Oak trunks are found in bogs, swamps, on riverbanks and lake shores, where they have been submerged for several centuries or even millennia. The dark oak gives a pleasing contrast to the pearl tang and the polished blade and I'm sure you'll agree Boker have produced a very impressive razor in this model.
