Boker - Graf Engelbert II. Straight Razor 7/8"
Company headquarters of Boker in Solingen is not far from the hallmark of the Bergisches Land region, the Castle Burg an der Wupper. The castle is one of the largest castles in Western Germany and the largest reconstructed castle in North Rhine Westphalia. The famous history of Castle Burg is inseparably linked to the Duchy Berg and the Counts von Berg (Haus Berg 1068-1225). Boker decided to dedicate a series of Straight Razors to the three Counts von Berg, which symbolizes parts of the life of the three Counts. The razor reminds us of the remarkable property and influence of the Counts with impressive ornamentations made from 24 carat gold.
The last Count von Berg, Engelbert II, was also called Archbishop of Cologne. When he was murdered, the House of Berg transitioned into the House of Limburg. This splendid 7/8 inch Straight Razor shows Engelbert II as Archbishop of Cologne. The graded head of this blade (ground until it makes the right sound) made from finest Solingen steel and the curved blade back in combination with a horn handle made from finest stag document its great elegance and unique quality. The blade is ground extra hollow with ridge. Includes certificate of authenticity and refined presentation display with individual serial number.
Made in Solingen, Germany.
