Boker Schwarzgold 6/8” Straight Razor, Bog Oak Wood Scales
In stock, ready to ship
With finesse and sophistication, the Boker Schwarzgold Straight Razor 6/8” represents an iconic piece of German history. This razor pays tribute to one of the most admired English thoroughbred horses in German horse racing, who won several titles in 1940. Mirroring the elegance and greatness of the horse, the Schwarzgold razor, meaning black and gold, is a piece of art. Its carbon steel blade features an extra-hollow grind with belly and is coated with Ruthenium, a hard platinum metal known for its durability and luster. Adorned on the gleaming blade is the Schwarzgold name and the image of a racing horse in 24-karat gold. Protecting the polished blade are black bog oak wood scales, extremely rare and cultivated from bogs that have been buried for hundreds of years. Packaged in a display box with a Boker certificate of authenticity, admire this straight razor for years to come.

Boker is a well-known name in the City of Blades, Solingen, Germany. Handcrafted razors and knives displaying the sign of the famous Chestnut Tree are coveted for their good looks and excellent performance. Rich in shaving history, Boker creates unique pieces to honour its history and roots. The Schwarzgold straight razor commemorates a decorated English thoroughbred horse in German horse racing. Known for her speed, Schwarzgold was the winner of the Preis der Diana and the Deutsches Derby in 1940. Her strict trainer forbid the use of common training practices, such as a bridle, and many believe she did not achieve her full potential.
