The famous knives with the world-renowned tree-brand are manufactured in the City of Blades Solingen since 1869. Since then, no knife left their manufactory without this sign of quality. The history of Boker has been affected by eventful times. But one thing has always been the same in more than 145 years: The passion and enthusiasm for extraordinary knives. The Boker Knife Manufactory Solingen has developed into a global innovation leader and the largest manufacturer of Sporting Knives, Tactical Knives and Collector’s Knives in Europe.
The Edelweiss Straight Razor line has already been a firm component of the historic Boker Straight Razor production since the 1920s. Even today they 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.
The blade width size is 20 mm (6⁄8 in).The width of the blade is defined as the distance between the back of the blade and the cutting edge. It is expressed in units of eighth of an inch. A narrow blade can shave tight facial spots such as under the nose, but it must be rinsed more often.
As the name already implies the point profile is semicircular and therefore it lacks any sharp end points. As such it is a more forgiving blade and although lacking the pinpoint accuracy other types, it is recommended for relatively new users.
The blade is made of stainless steel, which is resistant to rust, but can be more difficult to hone. To avoid water spots or rust the blade must always be thoroughly dried and the knives should be stored airy. Blades, which have not been used for a long time, need to be treated with oil.
Elforyn was developed as an ivory substitute on a largely mineral basis. It is not only visually but also extremely similar to its model in terms of processability and its technical properties. In the development, great emphasis was placed on environmental compatibility, the match with ivory is 89%. It can be machined very well and has a very low risk of breakage. The high-quality surface is fluorescent and convinces with a high surface hardness and low abrasion losses.
