Boker Silver Steel 6/8" Extra-Hollow Straight Razor with Faux Tortoise Scales, Shave ReadyBoker
New edition of a classic razor from the Böker product range of the beginning of the last century. In order to enhance the cutting properties, the blade steel contained real silver at the time and was called "Silver Steel". Thanks to the employment of real silver, the surface structure of the blade was clearly enhanced and as a result, the cutting performance of the razor was remarkably improved. The non stainless but high-performing 6/8' blade of carbon steel has a pronounced hollow ground and the remarkably smoothed out blade spine features a grooved thumb rest for particularly safe handling. Includes handle scales in classical tortoise shell look. The precious appearance of this partially translucent material creates the unique and elegant impression of this razor. This razor blade is manufactured by hand in over 120 individual operations in the Böker Knife Manufactory in Solingen. Delivered with individual serial number and certificate of authenticity. Comes in a historical collector's box.
As with all razors from Canadian Blade Company, this blade comes tested and shave ready. The seal on the case has only been opened to hone this razor. New straight razors usually ship in 3-5 business days, as I need time to hone them and clean them before sending them to you. This is time well spent, as you will receive a shave ready and clean razor to use!
