We've been very impressed with the new razors released from the classic brand of Boker Solingen, and are proud to now offer some of their fine razors. The craftsmanship is impeccable and blade grinding truly top-notch, many with a clear ringing sound associated with some of the thinnest, most finely ground vintage razors when the blade is lightly plucked.
Description from Boker:
"Style is less a question of elegance than of character. The Boker Black Amboina proves to perfection that these characteristics can be combined flawlessly. This expressive 6/8 inch straight razor is completely black and for the first time features a burnished blade made of high strength carbon steel. In this special process the surface of the blade is transformed into a black oxide layer through treatment with acid which is why it is not possible to speak of a coating in the classic sense.The extra high ground blade is serrated on both sides and thus underlines the exclusive character of the Boker Black Amboina. Due to the balanced weight the blade glides extremely pleasantly and cleanly over the skin. The hilt made of exotic Amboina wood impresses with its strikingly scattered grain which in parts is reminiscent of wild carbon fiber. The wood which originates fromSoutheast Asia owes this special structure to its tuber- like inner growths in the area of the roots which gives each piece its unique character.The distinctive black and the pleasantly smooth surface of the handle are achieved by stabilizing the wood. In this special process heated epoxy resin is pressed into the wood pores and then cured.The bulbous shape of the hilt forms a successful contrast to the straight head of the blade expressively emphasizing the lines of the Straight Razor. Discreet visual accents in the hilt are found as eye-catchers in the two nickel silver rivets and the silver Boker tree shield. Comes with an authentic Boker stamp in the blade barrel, certificate of authenticity, and elegant suspended display. Handcrafted in the Boker knife manufactory in Solingen."
Since many of our customers like to hone their own razors, by default we will ship these razors with the factory edge. However, we will happily hone them to our standards upon request, at no additional charge. If this service is desired please leave us a note at checkout and allow an extra 2-3 business days before shipment.
