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.

Tree Brand Brown Canvas Micarta

For many years, canvas Micarta has been well established and a proven material for handles of sporting and outdoor knives. Generally, Micarta is a compound material, consisting of fabric and epoxy. To produce Micarta, many layers of the medium (canvas) are immersed in epoxy. When hardened, it can be ground in the appropriate shape, and the typical structure of the basic material comes out in a beautiful way. The handle scales of the razor model "Tree Brand" are made of the very popular brown canvas Micarta. Canvas Micarta not only has an appealing look, it also offers a lot of advantages in use. This material is extremely rugged and provides a very secure and comfortable grip, even with wet hands. The 5/8" blade is made of the best Solingen razor steel (high edge retention, non-stainless), and will provide the perfect result, on a daily basis, with the traditional hollow grind. Made completely by hand at the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany.

Great Razor
This was my first straight razor and I love it so far. I took it straight from the box and shaved with no problem. I recommend this Boker even if I am new to the straight razor community. Thanks KC for the great deal.

Gorgeous fit and finish. This razor takes a much finer edge than my 1934 vintage razor.

Another Great Boker Blade!!!
I knew that when I purchased this razor it was not shave ready. However, after a couple passes on a 1200 grit stone and 100 strokes on a strop it was the sharpest razor in my box. The micarta handle is very sturdy and the razor is well constructed overall. I only gave it a 4 because the blade does not sit in scales completely square. (this does not affect the shave in any way, just aesthetics)
