This is the Böker Real Horn Shavette. It's made in Solingen, Germany made so expect the usual German attention to detail and superior engineering.
Do not confuse this brand of shavette with cheap imports from China and Pakistan. This is the real McCoy. The handle is made from real horn, the blade holder is made from stainless steel. Böker has been making razors, knives and swords since 1869.
The variations in the natural horn mean no two razors are the same. The variety of colours and patterning give each razor its own individual character. To help maintain the horn handle it should be oiled regularly.
The plastic blade insert which secures the razor blade reassuringly slides precisely into place and doesn't wobble like the cheap ones do.
Most men have a hankering to try shaving with a cut throat razor, what puts many off is the faffing around associated with this way of shaving. The Böker Shavette offers a real alternative. No stropping, no honing, when the blade dulls simply pop a new one in.
The Böker Shavette is compatible with standard double edge razor blades and long Dovo blades. It comes with two plastic blade holders, one for each type of blade and one free double edge razor blade. Finally, printed instructions in English and German on how to change the blade and care for the razor are included.
Blade holder will take standard razor blades with a width of 43mm and the wider 65mm shavette blades.
To prolong the life of the horn it should be oiled regularly.
Please note: due to natural variations in the horn, no two razors are the same.
With care! Take your time, use plenty of high-quality shaving cream, or soap so the blade can glide effortlessly over the surface of the skin. As soon as you feel a blade tugging on your bristles it's time to replace it. Shave in short strokes.
After use, rinse the razor clean in running water and dry with a cotton towel.
Forget staring off with a cheap Chinese shavette, you will only be disappointed. If you want to try the cut throat shaving experience without breaking the bank, the Böker Real Horn Shavette is the one to go for. Superbly engineered and very pleasing on the eye.
