    Default Boker “Clean Cutter”?

    I have a Boker straight on which the blade etching is very nearly gone, but when held at the right angle to the light looks to me to be “Clean Cutter”. I can’t find any reference to that.

    I’ve seen lots of Boker “King Cutter” blades, but never before a “Clean Cutter”. Was that a thing?

    I think Shaun is the Boker collector around these parts.

    I managed to get a photo with just the right amount of light. I’m pretty sure the remaining etch says “Clean” or “Clear”.

    Thank you to Bob for the suggestion to contact Alex at Strazors.

    He was very quickly able to supply a graphic that solves my mystery.

    The Wright and Wilhelmy razors were "Clean Clipper" but I haven't seen one with the Boker tang stamp, They had a tiny tree on the tail.

    My original post has the image of the maker’s stamp on the tang that showed the full Boker imprint and the tree.
