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 140507 Straight Razor, Stainless.  This is the first straight razor with a corrosion resistant blade in the Boker Manufaktur, a practical and appealing novelty. The universal size of 5/8 inch meets all demands, and the corrosion resistant blade makes care and maintenance easier. The specially selected olive wood handle gives this razor an extraordinary strength. Delivered in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity.

I am very pleased with this razor and the excellent price. It was shaving sharp right out of the box. Boker uses the best steel and knows how to put an edge on it.

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.
