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.

Stainless Black

The compact 4/8" blade has been a bestseller in the long history of high quality Boker razors. The steel (non-stainless) has outstanding edge retention and is traditionally ground by hand. The handle scales are made of water resistant synthetic material. An ideal tool even for daily professional use. Also features histrorical etching and authentic Boker stamp on the blade. Completely made by hand in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Delivered in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity.

Very good straight razor
I would like to give 5 stars but the handle wont make up to the quality of the blade. Anyway what matters is the blade!

Awesome razor !
Been straight razor shaving on and off for 20 years. This is now my daily shaver. Out of the box condition was great. A few laps on the hone, followed by the strop and it was good to go. Plan on getting one or two more to put in rotation. First 4/8 I've owned, and I'm very pleased.

Pros: Overall Quality
Cons: None
Almost perfect
As most of the factory honed straights it has to run in 8k (6 laps) and in 12k (10 laps) the only real issue is that when you open the blade is not as tight as it has to be what that means that is not well balanced. the razor is almost perfect. I will give 4.5 stars, system do not let me do that
