Description
BO140520: Edelweiss Straight Razor
Boker

Boker describes this item as follows:

Straight talk - exquisite.


Since the beginning of the Boker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors were produced in Solingen, Germany. At that time, Boker was 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 Boker's 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.

We are proud to present this straight razor to the market. With this razor, we close the gap and offer a premium quality straight razor for an extremely affordable price - made in the Solingen, Germany facility. This piece is manufactured with a keen eye for each and every small detail. The popular shape of the razor is called "King Cutter," also known as a "Spanish point." Hand-ground and assembled by our expert craftsmen. The blade is made of a special alloy, containing silver, for improved cutting capabilities. This model features a distinctive, genuine white bone handle. Blade: 5/8". Made in Solingen, Germany.

Great scales!
The stock photo does not give the bone scales justice. The bone scales are smooth and glossy like marble or ivory. very pleased, blade lines up perfect with scales.

Great razor
I shave with it every 4 days. It is one of my weekly razors. Very easy to use once it is properly honed. I would buy it again if i need it to.
