Not far from the company headquarters of the Boker manufacture in Solingen we find the hallmark of the Bergisches Land region, the castle Burg an der Wupper. It is also one of the largest castles in western Germany and the largest reconstructed castle in North Rhine-Westphalia. The famous history of Castle Burg is inseparably linked to the Duchy Berg and the counts von Berg (Haus Berg 1068-1225). On this occasion Boker decided to dedicate a series of Straight Razors to the three counts von Berg, which symbolizes parts of the life of the three counts and reminds us of the remarkable property and influence of the counts with impressive ornamentations made from 24 carat gold.
The strikingly ground and gilded blade back of the polished 5/8 inch blade is an absolute highlight of the Boker selection. The elements of the blade etching decorated with 24 carat gold are reminiscent of the realm of Count Everhard von der Mark with the coat of arms of the city of Hamm, which is derived from the House Berg. The tang, the blade with the rounded head, comes with a two-sided serration. Delivered in a refined presentation display with certificate of authenticity and individual serial number.
All of our razors come with a factory blade on them. They are ready to shave with after few passes on a strop. We recommend you strop your razor after you shave to help to maintain the blade's useful life between honing and keep the blade shave ready.

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.
