Every single straight razor that Boker has manufactured since 1869 in Solingen is made with meticulous care to everything: from the choice of steel, machining, hand-honing, and selection of superb materials... Boker is delightfully uncompromising in a world that is constantly cutting corners.
The Straight Razors of the Boker Premium Selection once again set themselves a bit further apart from the highlights of this catalog. The very elaborately worked handles are milled from the full material in the Boker Manufactory Solingen and look deceptively similar to the real natural materials. The nickel silver inlays underline the elaborate production and refinement of the handles and blades in manual labor.
The predecessor of this popular Boker Tortoise Shell 6/8 inch model was also clearly upgraded. New blade design, partial gilding, decorated blade back, nickel silver inlay , and serration on both sides are just a few innovations. The third stud gives the knife additional stability.With the blade being extra hollow ground, there's a wonderful lightness to its use. The resulting edge is so thin and yet so solid that we might just try cutting light with it one day.
