Boker Straight Razors
Since the beginning of the Boker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors were produced in Solingen, Germany. At that time, we were already focused on the usage of nothing less than the best in materials, and it was of the utmost importance to maintain the highest production standards available. With that background, the success came quickly, and this gave Boker straight razors an impeccable international reputation. After World War II, the manufacturing of straight razors gradually came to a stop. Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in our archives about the razor blade product line of that time. More than 100 years later, a new lineup is being manufactured in Solingen, reviving the old tradition. Through 170 individual production steps, the new and exclusive Boker straight razors are created. A guarantor for the highest quality is the successful "finger nail test". Only the edge of a perfectly ground blade can be visibly bent on your thumbnail and returns immediately to its original shape when released. Cheap blades are too thick to do this, and for that reason they are refered to as "axes" by the experts.

Nice everyday shaver
I have 2 of these (I bought it from a different site for 109$ a piece brand new ;) Silver Steels with tortoise scales. It is a full hollow blade and has a very delicate edge. Both of them came not shave ready - and stroping alone was not sufficient - I had to do a refreshing honing for both on a naniwa 12k stone (ref: Lynn Abrams' videos on YouTube). Once they are sharp, it gives a great shave (I used it this morning). The scales are really nice - sturdy - not cheap plastic. The blade has jimps (top and bottom of the tang). It is a 6/8th blade and very easy to handle (this is why I ordered the second one). Honing and stroping is very easy with this particular model. Perfect for daily shaving. I definitely recommend it and especially from Knife Center, given their online ordering system is superb and their customer service is top notch.
