Boker Edelweiss Special Edition 5/8" Straight Razor Ivory Gilded Carbon Steel

The Edelweiss Straight Razor line has already been a firm component of the historic Boker Straight Razor production since the 1920s. Even today we and a few lucky collectors still have absolutely like-new Straight Razors from this line from a time long since passed. The elaborately decorated Edelweiss lettering in the nickel silver inlay which is inserted in painstaking manual labor into the high-quality plastic handle with an ivory look, in combination with the original blade etching on the partially polished blade of this knife give it its special character. Analogously to the historic models, the handle area of the blade is only serrated on the top. The third decorative stud gives the handle additional stability and of course corresponds to the original of the historic line. Like with all Straight Razors from the Boker knife manufacture, the blade is ground extremely thin (until it makes the right sound), thus ensuring an always gentle and clean shave. Includes classic blade stamp on the tang. Delivery includes certificate of authenticity in historic packaging.


The Special Edition catches your eye not only with the Spanish Point but also with the blade which is partially refined with 24-carat gold. The total blade back and delicately worked details of the historic blade etching were gilded and raise this knife to a level hereto unknown. The 5/8" blade made from the best Solingen Straight Razor steel (special edge retention, non stainless) carries the traditional Spanish Point and is of course ground especially thin (until it makes the right sound).

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.

Blade Material: Carbon Steel with 24 carat gold ornamentations

    Boker Black Amboina straight Razor.

    This razor is a useful tool, as any razor ought to be. But it is also a beautiful piece of art.The scales and the blade go together in a very complementary fashion.

    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.
