Available is the H. Boker Rasiermesser Edelweiss Special Edition Straight Razor.  The solid 5/8" carbon steel blade is very attractive and perfect for someone looking to get under noses and lips. The round tip adds extra style and functionality to this impressive cutthroat!

The Straight Razors of the Boker Premium Selection once again set themselves a bit further apart from the highlights of this catalog. The very elaborately worked handles are milled from the full material in the Boker Manufacturer Solingen and look deceptively similar to the real natural materials. The nickel silver inlays underline the elaborate production and refinement of the handles and blades in manual labor.

The predecessor of this popular Boker Tortoise Shell 6/8 inch model was also clearly upgraded. New blade design, partial gilding, decorated blade back, nickel silver inlay , and serration on both sides are just a few innovations. The third stud gives the knife additional stability. Incl. certificate of authenticity and historic packaging.

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.
