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.
Boker 140532 Tree Brand Green Canvas Micarta Straight Razor 4/8 Inch Carbon Blade. For many years, canvas Micarta has been a well established and approved material for handles of sporting and outdoor knives. Generally, Micarta is a compound material, consisting of fabric and epoxy. To produce Micarta, many layers of the medium (canvas) are immersed in epoxy. When hardened, it can be ground in the appropriate shape, and the typical structure of the basic material comes out in a beautiful way. The handle scales of the razor model "Tree Brand" are made of the very popular green canvas Micarta. Canvas Micarta does not only have an appealing look, it also offers a lot of advantages in use. This material is extremely rugged and provides a very secure and comfortable grip, even with wet hands. The compact 4/8" blade is made of the best Solingen razor steel (high edge retention, non-stainless) and provides perfect handling, even for professional use, with the traditional hollow grind. Also features historical etching and authentic Boker stamp on the blade. Made completely by hand in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Comes in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity.
Thanks for such great service before AND during the sale. Y'all had a great attitude when I was asking a dozen questions and although I know and respect that your time is money I never felt hurried. It was like I was your only customer. You have won me as a life long customer even if you're in CA ;) I've got to get going but I wanted to let you know that the folks I worked with were all great and a definite asset to the company. Treat them right, retain them, and the rest will just fall in place.
