    Default FS: H. Boker and Co. razor - "King Cutter" (w/original case)

    Hello gentlemen.

    Here we have a nice Boker razor, made in Germany in the early years of the 20th
    century.

    It's pretty well shave-ready, and a few passes on the strop should have it
    mowing down whiskers with ease. My camera is pretty lousy, so I wasn't able
    to capture the script on the side of the blade too well, but the lettering is crisp.

    It comes with its original case, which looks like it just came from the store. Inside, the label reads, "This Razor is ground thin and finely tempered and should be handled carefully as Broken Razors can not be exchanged."

    Blade is a full hollow 5/8. The tang has an elegant shape too it, too. Not at all like those blunt nubs you see on the 18th century razors, for example.

    I know some are really into their Bokers. I'm asking $85.00.

    PM me.

    Default a bit off topic but a good question...

    Do they still produce Bokers? I read something that said that some were made in Japan; this can't be right can it?

    thanks,

    They are not making any more razors, but they do have the machinery and an inclination to start all over again.

    We can rebuild them... we have the technology.

    Yeah, I wasn't aware that they were still producing Boker razors. I can tell you that this is definitely a vintage one, though. You wouldn't know it from looking at the razor or the box (it looks like it was purchased a few months ago or something), but the label on the inside really tells its age.

    I sold one a while ago: http://www.straightrazorplace.com/fo...ead.php?t=8902. It shaved like a dream. I'm definitely keeping its twin brother that I got in the same lot

    I was comparing pictures from the two sales and the one you are selling appears to have been shortened by a 1/4 or so.

    Yes, it does appear to be shortened, I thought the etching looked a little off center before seeing the other thread. Good catch Ilija.
