Description from the Vendor
Boker is a well-known name in the City of Blades, Solingen, Germany. Handcrafted razors and knives displaying the sign of the famous Chestnut Tree are coveted for their good looks and excellent performance. Hand-ground and assembled in Solingen, Germany.
For the first time we are presenting two new razor models with a different handle shape, within the series THE CELEBRATED. The precious woods are delivered as planking material, cut by hand into scantlings and ground down to the required thickness. Then the handles are precision milled and provided with a fine chamfer. Delivered in historic packaging with certificate of authenticity.
The wood of the curly birch, indigenous to Northern Europe, is often used for exceptional knives thanks to its special characteristics. Features of this truly extraordinary model include a modern handle with a tree emblem, as well as a 6/8" carbon steel blade with a straight spine and polished, faceted point.
Most straight razors are not pre-sharpened from the factory. With this unhoned option, your razor will arrive with a factory sharpened blade, which might require honing before it is shave-ready.
