    OK all you B&B straight razor fanatics. It is time to show us what you have in your dens for Bokers. :drool:

    I will get the show going with this beauty. I like to think it was made for the Waldorf Barber Shop in Ireland but I am sure I am just dreaming. It is a 5/8 Quarter Hollow, with a Bakelite covered Tang and a what I think is a pretty cool design on the scales. I found it in the wild for $35.00. I do not think it was ever used. I had it honed and she was ready to go. :thumbup:

    Another thread for which I can't - sadly - contribute any pictures.
     
  8. Here's a shot of my one and only Boker, with bone or ivory scales. Square-tipped, and one of my low-maintenance faves.

    Did you do all the custom work? Those are beauties.
     
  10. Very nice stuff! I have one I restored a couple weeks ago...

    "Damascus Magnetic Steel" and bamboo flooring material for scales, walnut wedge from a broken rifle stock. Needs honing still.

    This was my first straight razor and restore. I am happy with it!

  14. Shockingly I can't either. I've owned a number of Boker's, but none have ever impressed me enough to keep. I'll still keep trying them though....
     
  15. Hello all,

    This is my second post, and let me say those are some very nice razors! Mine, not so much, but it is a Boker and i'm hoping to learn how clean, restore and hone the slight frown out of it. Can anyone point me to a good place to determine age etc?

  18. This hardly belongs here but I picked it up today at a yard sale. It is a bit rusty and also rust in the gold.
