Boker Straight Razors

Demanding craftsmanship is one of our traditions in the Boker knife manufactory, where a maximum of dexterity is necessary - like when shaving by hand. A perfect shave needs, before anything else, one thing - a perfect razor.

Since the beginnings of the Boker Manufactory in 1869, high quality straight razors were made in Solingen. Even in these early days, the focus was set on high end materials and perfect handmade quality and craftsmanship. Soon this strategy gained success, and Boker straight razors became well known. After the second World War, the production of straight razors was ended internationally, due to destruction of the plant by allied bombing.

Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in the company's archives about the lineup of straight razors of that time. More than 100 years later, a new series of straight razors is handmade in the Solingen Manufactory and revives the old tradition.

A quality check for every straight razor is the so called thumb nail test. Only perfectly ground razor edges can be bent on the back of your thumb nail and return to their normal shape afterwards.

Start the day with a true masterpiece - a straight razor from Boker.

Awesome razor! I've never, and I mean NEVER, had such a great shave! I will never go back to cartridge razors!

I first saw this razor's price and thought why is it so expensive but after reading a some reviews, I decided to try this out, and I must say it was worth the money, it arrived before the estimated time, it came ready to shave, it was very sharp but I did a little honing just to make sure, well when it all comes down to it you can't go wrong with this purchase.

This is an awesome razor--I love the simple yet exquisite build & finish, it has more heft and better construction and a better feel in hand than my Dovo (which is more expensive). The genuine bone scales are smooth and shiny like marble or ivory. The blade is perfectly centered between the scales. The blade came shave ready and holds its edge very well.
