The re-release of the historic Boker Barber's Choice has been a matter of the heart for us. In the pre-war era, the classic straight razor was considered the first choice for barbers who wanted to use a knife for all occasions, thus providing the best possible flexibility for shaving. Consequently, the razor uses a 5/8 inch wide blade with a Spanish head so that even impressive contours can be shaved out. The Barber's Choice lettering adorns the front of the blade according to a historical model and is rounded off by the classic H.Boker & Co logo on the blade's edge. Only on the basis of a historical original knife was it possible to carry out an elaborate restoration of the lettering, which then found its final and detailed implementation in a multi-layer laser process.
The satin-finished blade is made of resistant carbon steel and is characterized by high edge retention. The black handle is made of indestructible plastic and is therefore very easy to clean, not only for barbers. The two nickel silver studs decorate the handle in a harmonious way. Limited to 300 pieces, the Boker Barber's Choice comes supplied with a certificate of authenticity and historical packaging. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen.

Productions like a museum quality piece. Didn't even want to shave with it because I was concerned I would mess up how spectacular this blade looks. For just lining up my beard lines this 5/8" handles most excellent. Shaving with this razor is like a hot knife cutting through butter. Couldn't be more pleased. For anything other than lining up my facial hair I use a 6/8" blade or a 7/8" just because they seem to handle more facial hair in less time. I am sure it is all technique but each man will develop a certain preference or technique that works for them.
