Boker makes some of the best straight razors that Solingen has to offer. This hollow ground, 4/8ths German carbon steel blade features a round point to ensure an excellent shave while reducing the chance of “accidents”. The black synthetic scales are durable and waterproof, making them a simple yet excellent choice for a straight razor. This blade is not stainless, so take care to wipe and dry the blade off after shaving.
About Boker - Patterned after the chestnut tree that towered above the first Boker factory across the river from Solingen, Boker has been grinding blades since 1829. That tree stood until 1925 when it was cleaved in twain by lightning. With production alternating between Solingen and New York, Boker’s legacy of fine blades continues nearly two centuries later in their straight razors that still bear the mark of the tree.
