Micarta is a very popular material used in sporting and outdoor knives. It is made from numerous layers of sail cloth impregnated with phenolic resin, cured and then ground to the desired shape. The Micarta handle on this razor not only looks beautiful, it is extremely durable and guarantees a secure grip even with wet hands. The 5/8 inch wide blade is made of best quality Solingen razor steel (not stainless) with especially good edge retention so that the traditional hollow ground blade delivers a perfect shave every day. Entirely made by hand in the Böker knife factory in Solingen. The blade also features a historical etching and an authentic Böker stamp.
Boker have been manufacturing high quality razors in Solingen (Germany's "Sheffield steel" equivalent) since 1869. More than 100 years later the new lineup revives the old tradition, with each open razor going through 170 production steps. A guarantor for the highest quality is the successful "finger nail test" wherby only the edge of a perfectly ground blade can be visibly bent on your thumbnail and returns immediately to its original shape when released -cheap blades are too thick to do this. Comes packaged with a certificate of authenticity.
Please note: As with all of our open razors, whilst this razor is factory honed and deemed "shave ready" by the manufacturer, that's not to say it can't be made sharper by getting it honed professionally which is down to personal preference.
