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.

Got this in a couple of weeks back and, gave it a run with out sharpening (I did give it a good stropping) While it did need a time on the stone I have to admit it feels better than other razors do when fully ready to go. Got it sharpened and it shaves like a dream. I will be getting an additional one here within a week for part of my rotations.

Fantastic razor! The blade is shave ready right out of the box. Holds the edge well and provides an easy smooth shave. It looks terrific!

The shipping was very fast and the blade came shaving sharp out of the box. I have a heavy beard and it cut through it with one pass like a hot knife through butter straight out of the package. The weight distribution is spot on perfect and it feels very natural. It is a beautiful razor asthetically and functionally.

This razor is exactly as reviewed by the manufacturer. If you like the look on the internet you will not regret buying it.Because it is so good looking I have decided to buy a second razor to prolong the life of this beauty. The price at OsoG was the best on the net and delivery was as promised.
