The Edelweiss Straight Razor line has already been a firm component of the historic Boker Straight Razor production since the 1920s. Even today we and a few lucky collectors still have absolutely like-new Straight Razors from this line from a time long since passed. The elaborately decorated Edelweiss lettering in the nickel silver inlay which is inserted in painstaking manual labor into the high-quality plastic handle with an ivory look, in combination with the original blade etching on the partially polished blade of this knife give it its special character. Analogously to the historic models, the handle area of the blade is only serrated on the top. The third decorative stud gives the handle additional stability and of course corresponds to the original of the historic line. Like with all Straight Razors from the Boker knife manufacture, the blade is ground extremely thin (until it makes the right sound), thus ensuring an always gentle and clean shave. Incl. classic blade stamp. Delivery includes certificate of authenticity in historic packaging.
For the first time since the 1920s, this reissue of the Edelweiss Straight Razor also comes as a 6/8 inch version. Experience user love greater blade widths than 4/8 and 5/8 inch. In addition to the greater weight and the imposing look, there are purely functional reasons which speak for the use of a 6/8" blade since it can pick up more foam during the shave. The blade width also brings out the beautiful historic blade etching especially well.
