The Straight Razors of the Boker Premium Selection once again set themselves a bit further apart from the highlights of this catalog. The very elaborately worked handles are milled from the full material in the Boker Manufactory Solingen and look deceptively similar to the real natural materials. The nickel silver inlays underline the elaborate production and refinement of the handles and blades in manual labor.

The predecessor of this popular Boker Tortoise Shell 6/8 inch model was also clearly upgraded. New blade design, partial gilding, decorated blade back, nickel silver inlay , and serration on both sides are just a few innovations. The third stud gives the knife additional stability.
With the blade being extra hollow ground, there's a wonderful lightness to its use. The resulting edge is so thin and yet so solid that we might just try cutting light with it one day.

Comes with: historical packaging; certificate of authenticity.

    Great razor

    Took forever but finally got it (not GMS's fault at stuck in mail jail). Anyway...sweet razor. Whoever says these aren't shave ready and "need to send away for honing" =wrong. Straight out of box passes hht...easy. Quick strop on paste then on horse and shave left my face with a week's growth like glass. It's not 6/8...measures in at the bigger 13/16. This thing is beautiful to boot. I go for the classic look of 1940/50s razors everytime and Boker nailed this one. Thanks Dave P. It's a keeper.
