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:
"While forged razors and the classic wet shave are experiencing a renaissance, genuine broadsword razors are still rare. For the first time in generations, 8/8 inch wide razors are back in our range. In times when the mighty blades were even more common, 8/8 inch wide razors with straight heads were called "14s". This marking was stamped into the tang of the blade before the forged blades were hardened. Careful not to leave out this signature feature, we have implemented it in our Boker 14. The 8/8 inch wide blade not only bears a historical blade etching with partial gilding, but also a gilded blade spine and tang, which is elegantly decorated by a filigree and detailed laser engraving. The complete polishing of the blade and the jimping on both sides of the tang round off the features of this knife. We have also used historical models as a basis for the material used for the handle. Made of dark, slightly transparent acrylic, it blends harmoniously into the overall look due to the subtle brass inlay. With authentic Boker stamp in the blade passage, certificate of authenticity and attractive floating display."
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.
