The Edelweiss Straight Razor line has already been a firm component of the historic Boker Straight Razor production since the 1920s. Even today we and a few lucky collectors still have absolutely like-new Straight Razors from this line from a time long since passed. The elaborately decorated Edelweiss lettering in the nickel silver inlay which is inserted in painstaking manual labor into the high-quality plastic handle with an ivory look, in combination with the original blade etching on the partially polished blade of this knife give it its special character. Analogously to the historic models, the handle area of the blade is only serrated on the top. The third decorative stud gives the handle additional stability and of course corresponds to the original of the historic line. Like with all Straight Razors from the Boker knife manufacture, the blade is ground extremely thin (until it makes the right sound), thus ensuring an always gentle and clean shave. Incl. classic blade stamp. Delivery includes certificate of authenticity in historic packaging.

The Special Edition catches your eye not only with the Spanish Point but also with the blade which is partially refined with 24-carat gold. The total blade back and delicately worked details of the historic blade etching were gilded and raise this knife to a level hereto unknown. The 5/8" blade made from the best Solingen Straight Razor steel (special edge retention, non stainless) carries the traditional Spanish Point and is of course ground especially thin (until it makes the right sound).

The traditional hollow grind is suitable for new users and experienced alike. Made completely by hand at the Boker Manufacturer in Solingen, Germany. It arrives 100% Shave Ready after being finished on a 20,000 stone, stropped, and oiled. Pick up this razor today!

"Honing starts out on a Chosera 1000 Wet stone were I begin to set the bevel. Once the bevel outline is finished I move onto the Chosera 3000 where the bevel is cleaned up and refined. Next its on to the polishing stage which starts out on the Aishyama 6000 and moves to the naniwa 12000. After the 12k, a perfectly good shave can occur. But we like to take it one step further and finish with a high polish on the Suehiro Gokumyo 20000." Eric, Razor Miester. After honing, the blade is stropped, oiled, and arrives shave ready! Please do not strop this razor before your first shave.
