Description
BO140514: Boker Elite Straight Razor
Boker
 
At the end of the 19th century, there was a line of unique and eccentric straight razors that were distributed under the brand name "Boker Elite." With this Boker Elite, Boker is reviving this tradition. The unusual blade grind gives it a unique character. The massive 6/8" blade, made of carbon steel (non-stainless) for superior edge retention, features a fine hollow grind and two swedges on the blade spine. The dynamic transition from the edge to the grind adds an appealing touch. The handle scales are crafted of carefully selected buffalo horn in France, and are mounted on nickel silver liners, which provides added stability and soft, even blade action. This fascinating straight razor is manufactured by hand, in a process of 140 steps, in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Delivered in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity.

Pros: Durability, None
Cons: Overall Quality
Bad QC
I have been waiting for this razor to become available for some time, but was patient. I was expecting a very high quality product. I received the razor and found that the quality was lacking. I have other Boker razors that are very well made and expected the same from an "ELITE" model at the cost of $270.00 msrp. The razor is a beautiful piece of work, in idea. However, the scales were misaligned with the liners, by 1/64", and I had to remove two inches of glue from the scales, top and bottom. The etching on the blade is nicely done with a good depth instead of the normal surface etch, again the edges of the etch are very rough, and feels like it could cut the skin when you rub across the surface. They need to be smoothed out to make a better finished product. I cleaned the blade removed the glue, stroped and got a good shave. So it was shave ready out of the box. If they had added jimps on the tang it could be worth the $270 msrp. I don't think Boker has done justice to a, once remarkable razor. Hope they improve the finished quality in the future. KnifeCenter,com did a remarkable job in getting the order filled and delivered in two days time. Thank you.
