Handmade in Solingen, Germany the Boker Black Amboina 6/8" square point Straight razor proves to perfection that style is less a question of elegance than of character. The uninhibited 6/8 inch razor is entirely black with a burnished blade made from high-strength carbon steel. In a special process, the surface of the blade is transformed into a black oxide layer by treatment with acid, which is why it is not possible to speak of a coating in the classic sense. The extra-high ground blade has jimpings on both sides and thus underlines the exclusive character of the Boker Black Amboina straight razor. Due to the balanced weight of the knife, the blade glides effortlessly and cleanly over the skin.
The hilt made of exotic Amboina wood scale impresses with its strikingly variegated grain, which in parts is reminiscent of wild carbon fiber. The wood, which originates from Southeast Asia, owes this special structure to its tuber-like intergrowths in the area of the roots, which gives each knife its unique character. The distinctive black and the pleasantly smooth surface of the handle are achieved with the help of stabilizing the wood. In this special process, heated epoxy resin is pressed into the wood pores and then hardened. The bulbous shape of the handle forms a successful contrast to the straight edge of the blade, expressively emphasizing the lines of the razor.
Discreet visual accents in the hilt are found in the two studs made of nickel silver as well as the silver Boker branded tree sign. Furnished with an authentic Boker stamp on the blade, a certificate of authenticity, and an elegant floating display.
