Böker Manufaktur PAUA 140554 razor blade
This straight razor has an extra hollow sharpening with a ridge. Full hollowing gives it an extremely fine edge that is also a bit flexible. This razor is awesome to work with, but might not be as suitable for a full beard. The ridge ensures that the spine of the blade is thick enough to be blocked by the handle. In addition, the spine provides support in determining the correct sharpening angle while seating and sharpening.
This knife is enhanced with a French point and the tang behind the edge is enhanced with grip serrations on both sides. The handle is paua, a type of mother-of-pearl from New Zealand. Very elegant!
