Description: The Boker Olive Wood Stainless Steel Straight Razor (140507) is the first straight razor with a corrosion resistant blade in the Boker lineup. The corrosion resistant blade makes care and maintenance easier.
This razor is a 5/8" -- the universal size which meets all demands. A 5/8" blade is the perfect balance point between being a large enough blade to easily slice through thick, coarse hair while being small enough to shave under your nose or around your ears without a mishap. This also makes it a perfect beginning straight razor, which lets you decide if you will prefer a slightly longer or shorter razor in the future.
Hand selected olive wood (Olea spp.) handle scales give this razor an extraordinary strength and beauty. The yellow-brown wood has dramatic, high contrast dark lines moving through the figure. The handle will protect the blade during storage and offers a nice balance to the blade during use.
Since 1869, razors with the world-renowned tree-brand have been manufactured in Solingen, Germany. Even in these early days, the focus was set on high end materials and perfect handmade quality and craftsmanship. The history of Boker was affected by eventful times. After the second World War, the production of straight razors in Solingen ceased when the plants were destroyed by bombing. Today a new and exclusive line is manufactured in Solingen, reviving the old tradition. These new, exclusive Boker straight razors are manufactured completely by hand. One thing has always been the same in more than 145 years: Boker's passion and enthusiasm for extraordinary blades.
This straight razor is delivered in a traditional razor box with a certificate of authenticity.
We recommend using a storage pouch when the razor is not being used or when traveling.
Handmade in Solingen, Germany.
