The Damascus Straight Razors are an absolute highlight in the more than 100-year history of worldwide renown of the high-quality Straight Razors by Boker. The special exclusivity comes from using powder metallurgical, stainless Damascussteel from Sweden. In a very technically demanding and complex process, 180 layers of Damascussteel are created in a sintering process to create the perfect starting material for the fine hand-sharpening of the blades.
The traditional extra-hollow-grind (sound) lets the fine edge carries a tune and lets the beautiful and extraordinarily fine grain of the natural Damascus pattern shine. The 5/8 inch wide blade has a two-sided serration for a safe grip. Boker Damascus Straight Razors are completely hand-made in the Boker knife manufacture in Solingen in a 150-step process. Deliveries include a certificate of authenticity in a refined presentation display with an individual serial number.
The hand-picked horn handles of the Boker Damascus Straight Razor in combination with the refined, stainless 5/8 inch Damascus blade make this Straight Razor unique. The high-quality look of the horn handle is underlined by the use of a third stud. The Damascus blade is also decorated with a Spanish head. The Spanish head is especially suitable for precise shaving and contouring due to its well-defined front edge.
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.

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.
