Boker makes some of the best straight razors that Solingen has to offer. This hollow ground, 5/8ths German stainless steel blade features a round point to ensure an excellent shave while reducing the chance of “accidents”. The olive wood scales are beautiful and rustic, yet strong enough to withstand some wear. That being said, wooden scales do not like getting soaked in water frequently. Unlike most straight razors, this blade is stainless steel. However, we still think you should take the time to dry your razor off when you’re finished getting the best shave of your life.

This Razor was honed by Hand
At Kent of Inglewood, we hone every single razor to ensure that it is shave-ready when you take it home. That being said, the first sharpening will also be free of charge. That is $40 worth of sharpening before the razor ever leaves the shop, because we care about the perfect shave.
Care for Razors

Most razors are made of a high carbon steel, which allows for a long-lasting and sharper edge but is susceptible to rusting when left wet or in a humid environment. To prevent this, one would dry the razor thoroughly after each use and rub it with blade oil when stored for prolonged periods of time.

To maintain the edge, a leather strop is of the utmost importance. Ideally used before each shave, the strop does the best job at polishing a razor for the smoothest shave possible. It is important to use a gentle touch and to keep the spine flat on the leather; pushing too hard or using too steep of an angle can damage the delicate edge.

Even with regular stropping, a razor will need to be honed. In the world of razors, honing is the process of using a sharpening stone to refresh the edge. Depending on its use, a razor will need to be honed one or two times a year. Any razors purchased from Kent of Inglewood will receive their first honing for free, subsequent honing services are a mere $20. If you are the sort to take care of things yourself, a progression of high quality Japanese water stones will prove indispensable.
