Boker The Celebrated 6/8 Singing Full Hollow Blade with Wenge Scales Solingen Straight Razor
Note: The razor shown is a stock photo from our inventory. Since the razor's scales are made from a natural material they will vary in appearance from those shown.
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:
"THE CELEBRATED features unique and precious woods that are delivered as planking material, and then cut by hand into scantlings before being ground down to razor scales. Then the handles are precision milled and provided a fine chamfer for a remarkably comfortable grip. Delivered in historic packaging with certificate of authenticity.
The handles of this model boast the extraordinary contrasting pattern of Wenge, an African fine wood, which gives each piece a unique and individual appearance. The 6/8" blade of carbon steel has a combination square and faceted round point, as well as a straight spine, which gives the blade a harmonious appearance."
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.
