The extraordinary 6/8 inch Straight Razor symbolizes the death of Adolf III Count von Berg during the fifth crusade in Egypt. The end of the polished blade is lined by a French head which underlines the special elegance of this knife. Hand-picked stag scales with additional decorative studs, the elaborate grind of the blade back, and the partial gilding (24 carat) are just a few of the highlights. Delivered in a refined presentation display with certificate of authenticity and individual serial number.
Not far from the company headquarters of the Boker manufacture in Solingen we find the hallmark of the Bergisches Land region, the castle Burg an der Wupper. It is also 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). On this occasion we decided to dedicate a series of Straight Razors to the three counts von Berg, which symbolizes parts of the life of the three counts and reminds us of the remarkable property and influence of the counts with impressive ornamentations made from 24 carat gold.
