Boker 140620 Edelweiss Straight Razor
Since the beginning of the Boker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors were produced in Solingen, Germany. At that time, they were already focused on the usage of nothing less than the best in materials, and it was of the utmost importance to maintain the highest production standards available.
With that background, the success came quickly, and this gave Boker straight razors an impeccable international reputation.
After World War II, the manufacturing of straight razors gradually came to a stop. Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in their archives about the razor blade product line of that time. More than 100 years later, a new lineup is being manufactured in Solingen, reviving the old tradition.
Through 170 individual production steps, the new and exclusive Boker straight razors are created. A guarantor for the highest quality is the successful "finger nail test". Only the edge of a perfectly ground blade can be visibly bent on your thumbnail and returns immediately to its original shape when released. Cheap blades are too thick to do this, and for that reason they are referred to as "axes" by the experts.
A classic in the Boker lineup, and the perfect razor for everyday. With the practical 5/8” blade, it is the ideal razor for use every morning. Easy to handle and provides excellent shaving results. Also suitable for less experienced users. The non-stainless blade is made of the best Solingen razor steel, and masters daily use with ease, with its traditional hollow grind. The handle scales are synthetic Elforyn Ivory. This piece also features a historical blade etching from the 1920’s. Made completely by hand in the Boker factory in Solingen, Germany. Comes in traditional packaging with a certificate of authenticity.
