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.
