New Böker Straight Razors and Accessories15 Dec 2016
The art of shaving. Since the beginning of the Böker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors for shaving 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 Böker straight razors an impeccable international reputation.
After World War II, the manufacturing of straight razors gradually came to a stop.
Today, an original Böker catalogue from 1906 is the oldest document in Böker 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 Böker 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.
Böker classic model gets a new look, with elegant white handle scales. The King Cutter is a classic in the Böker lineup, and the perfect razor for every day. With the practical 5/8" blade, it is the ideal razor for use every morning. Easy to handle and provides excellent shaving results. Also suitable for less experienced users. The non-stainless blade is made of the best Solingen razor steel, and masters daily use with ease, with its traditional hollow grind. The handle is made of moisture resistant synthetic material. This piece also features historical blade etching and authentic Böker stamp. Made completely by hand in the Böker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Comes in traditional packaging with a certificate of authenticity.
