Boker Straight Razors

Demanding craftsmanship is one of our traditions in the Boker knife manufactory, where a maximum of dexterity is necessary - like when shaving by hand. A perfect shave needs, before anything else, one thing - a perfect razor.

Since the beginnings of the Boker Manufactory in 1869, high quality straight razors were made in Solingen. Even in these early days, the focus was set on high end materials and perfect handmade quality and craftsmanship. Soon this strategy gained success, and Boker straight razors became well known. After the second World War, the production of straight razors was ended internationally, due to destruction of the plant by allied bombing.

Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in the company's archives about the lineup of straight razors of that time. More than 100 years later, a new series of straight razors is handmade in the Solingen Manufactory and revives the old tradition.

A quality check for every straight razor is the so called "thumb nail test." Only perfectly ground razor edges can be bent on the back of your thumb nail and return to their normal shape afterwards.

Start the day with a true masterpiece - a straight razor from Boker.

Good value for a basic, quality, stainless straight razor
I bought this as a gift for my husband to replace a really old straight razor. Not knowing much about straight razors, I sought the Boker brand because it's one I've seen him and my dad use. I was looking for a good quality stainless blade at a reasonable price. He seems quite happy with it, and he shaves more often than he used to with the old one. I can't yet speak to durability, but I suspect he'll be using it for many many years.

Excellent!
I use stainless straight razors in my daily rotation because they resist rust and stains. This did not come shave ready, but after I honed and stroped the razor, it turns out to be one of the best shavers I own. I prefer a wider blade, at least a 6/8" blade, but I have absolutely no problem shaving with this 5/8" razor. I would definately recommend this razor to anyone.
