Böker Barber's Choice straight razor 140222
The re-release of the historic Boker Barber's Choice has been a matter of the heart for us. In the pre-war era, the classic straight razor was considered the first choice for barbers who wanted to use a knife for all occasions, thus providing the best possible flexibility for shaving. Consequently, the razor uses a 5/8 inch wide blade with a Spanish head so that even impressive contours can be shaved out. The Barber's Choice lettering adorns the front of the blade according to a historical model and is rounded off by the classic H.Boker & Co logo on the blade's edge. Only on the basis of a historical original knife was it possible to carry out an elaborate restoration of the lettering, which then found its final and detailed implementation in a multi-layer laser process. The satin-finished blade is made of resistant carbon steel and is characterised by high edge retention. The black handle is made of indestructible plastic and is therefore very easy to clean, not only for barbers. The two nickel silver studs decorate the handle in a harmonious way. Limited to 300 pieces, the Boker Barber's Choice comes supplied with a certificate of authenticity and historical packaging. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen.
Country of origin:
Started from a small hardware factory of the Böker family in Germany in the 17th century, Böker became famous in 1869 when they launched their tree-brand knives developed in cooperation with the well-known cutlery-expert Hermann Heuser. The history of Böker has been affected by eventful times, but two things remained: passion and enthusiasm for extraordinary knives. Böker was one of the first companies to offer ceramic knives as a featured product line.
