    Default RAD strikes again -- New Boker on the Way!

    I just ordered a Boker "Silver Steel" 5/8 with Imitation Tortoise Shell Scales from Vintage Blades LLC. I emailed Jim with a question and got an answer in 12 hours. What a great person, and what a great site they have. Can't wait!

    Not sure about the new Bokers but the vintage ones are DFS and give a 'Buttery Smooth' shave.......Enjoy!

    Default New Boker arrived!

    Well, with outstanding customer service from Jim at Vintage Blades (Vintage Blades LLC)
    my new Boker arrived yesterday via UPS. I ordered it 4 days earlier after asking some questions, which were promptly answered. The big surprise was that was a 6/8 not a 5/8, and when I shaved with it today (no stropping, as it was honed shave ready), it was amazingly smooth and sharp. I can't say enough good things about the razor or the experience with Vintage Blades, LLC.

    Here is a picture (or two):
