6/8'' Straight Razor, Buffalo Horn
At the end of the 19th century, there was a line of unique and eccentric straight razors that were distributed under the brand name “Böker Elite.” The unusual blade grind gives it a unique character. The massive 6/8″ blade is made of carbon steel (non-stainless) for superior edge retention, features a fine hollow grind and two swedges on the blade spine. The dynamic transition from the edge to the grind adds an appealing touch. The handle scales are crafted of carefully selected buffalo horn in France, and are mounted on nickel silver liners, which provide added stability and soft, even blade action. This fascinating straight razor is manufactured by hand, in a process of 140 steps, in the Böker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Delivered in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity.
