Black Boker Amboina (Amboyna) 6/8 Straight Razor
The Boker Black Amboina expresses both style and character with its completely black burnished blade made of high-strength carbon steel. The surface of the blade is transformed into a black oxide layer by treatment with acid, creating a non-classical coating.
The extra-high ground blade has jimpings on both sides thus underlining the exclusive character of the Boker Black Amboina. Due to the balanced weight of the knife, the blade glides extremely pleasantly and cleanly over the skin.
The handle made of exotic Amboina wood impresses with its striking marble grain, which in parts is reminiscent of wild carbon fibre. The wood, which originates from Southeast Asia, owes this special structure to its tuber-like inter-growths in the area of the roots, which gives each knife its unique character.
The distinctive black and the pleasantly smooth surface of the handle are achieved with the help of stabilising the wood. In this special process, heated epoxy resin is pressed into the wood pores and then hardened. The bulbous shape of the handle forms a successful contrast to the straight edge of the blade, expressively emphasising the lines of the razor.
Discrete visual accents in the hilt are found as eye-catchers in the two studs made of Nikel silver as well as the silver Boker tree sign. Supplied with an authentic Boker stamp on the blade, a certificate of authenticity and an elegant floating display. Handmade by the Boker Knife Manufacturer in Solingen.
