Even before the Tour de France could establish itself as the most important cycling race in the world, the former heroes tortured themselves on two wheels over rough cobblestones, dusty gravel roads, and sometimes short and torturous climbs. Steel frame, cotton jersey, casquette, only one gear but a heroic mustache were the usual equipment for the relentless 250 km of the classic one-day races. This nostalgic magic gave rise to the five monuments of cycling that still thrill countless cycling fans today. The first of these traditional one-day classics originated in Belgium and France before 1900 and brought fame and honor to the winners.
Boker brings back a piece of history and presents the Boker Bicycle Race as a new edition of the razor of the same name that appeared around 1900. The blade of the special model, which is limited to 300 pieces worldwide, shows a classic bicycle race in a picturesque landscape according to historical models. The elaborately restored motif, laser-cut in several layers, fills almost the entire blade, while the historic H. Boker & Co logo adorns the blade's edge.
The 5/8 inch wide blade made of resistant carbon steel is provided with a degree head and stands for the versatility, robustness, and straightness of those classic bicycles that had to be prepared for all terrains with a piece of fixed equipment - so the Boker Bicycle Race is in no way inferior in terms of shaving. The classy satin finish and the single-edged jimps round off the heroic profile of the razor. The crowned handle made of black plastic has been contemporary refined with two nickel silver studs. Supplied with a certificate of authenticity and historical packaging. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen.

Really well-made straight razor from Germany. It holds a keen, comfortable edge to shave with. I strop it every day on my leather strop and get a smooth, irritation free comfortable shave. The razor arrived in time.
