Not made in Germany
Made in Switzerland and poor quality. They should stick to watches. My experiences are with true German safety razors Muhle and Merkur to be specific. This particular Boker safety razor cannot hold a candle to any of the several before mentioned German razors I own. For the money this Boker cost me, a much better Muhle or Merkur could have been bought. I love Boker knives and I thought this razor would be of comparable quality. I guess the production was outsourced. Again, disappointed.

High Tech
The Gillette Tech is well known as the greatest cheap razor ever made. They made millions of them, a stamped brass bit of industrial design that did the job well for nearly nothing and got even the poorest man buying the cash cow: the blades. Gillette couldn’t give the Tech away fast enough. And while it was famously cheap, it also excelled at shaving. Mild yet able. The shortcomings had to do with finish and overmildness. The low level of finishing detail was a huge factor in the Tech’s low price, but it sure looked cheap. The design was a good one but it was made to be stamped and cut out of a sheet of brass in a single operation. There was no craftsman on the line debuting the guards. They just go tumbled in a polishing tumbler and dunked in the etching tank, then the nickel or gold plating tank. So modern evolutions of the Tech refine that masterpiece of mass production, which is what Boker did here. The guard is polished better than the Tech and de-horned to feel like a grooming tool right out of the box. The rinse channels in the guard are opened up wider than on the Tech, making the Boker Tech easier to use. Finally, the blade geometry, while still fairly mild, is more efficient than the Tech. The Tech’s stamped brass is superior to the plated zinc alloy used here. But the level of smooth finish and mild but more efficient shaving geometry are a real step up from the tech for me.
