Boker - S. S. Saint Louis, Straight Razor 6/8"
Promising faraway places, the gentle sound of the waves and the seemingly endless expanse of the ocean: on her maiden voyage from New York to Southampton in June 1895, an exuberant holiday mood prevailed on board the S.S. St. Louis. At that time, the S. S. St. Louis was one of the largest and most powerful ocean liners under the American flag at the turn of the century. Mainly intended for transatlantic liner traffic between America and Europe, the steamship was also temporarily used as a troop carrier during the Spanish-American War and the First World War.
In the spirit of the transatlantic liner launched in 1894, Boker presents the American Line S.S. St. Louis, a new edition of the historic Boker razor, limited to 300 pieces worldwide, which brings back the glamour of bygone days and transforms every shave into a breath of exotic faraway places. The imposing ship adorns almost the entire front of the polished 6/8" blade made of carbon steel. The square head is the perfect blade shape among connoisseurs for a precise shave of the contours. The blade is stamped with the historic H. Boker & Co. stamp and serrated on the underside. The material used for the scales is exquisite ebony, which thanks to its dark coloring is reminiscent of the hull of the S.S. St. Louis, while two studs as well as the Boker tree emblem harmoniously accentuate the crowned hilt. The motif on the blade as well as the historical stamp have been elaborately restored and lasered onto the razor using the most modern techniques.
Limited to 300 pieces. Supplied in a lovingly recreated historical neck box.
