Reissue of the most famous models in the long history of the Boker Straight Razor.

The newly designed models with handles made from fine woods also come with the popular 5/8 inch blades which are laboriously made from carbon steel and decorated.

The scales made from handpicked olive wood give The Celebrated Olive its special accent and lively grain.

Due to the use of natural materials, the different specimens partly deviate from each other. The blade is ground extra hollow with ridge.

"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.
