Heinr Fettkutter Osnabruck Boker Edelweiss 5/8 (9/16 at the toe) round point

Came to me freshly honed and shave ready, and I have not used the blade. I bought this as part of a package or straights at $90 (for this blade, not the package). $90, 80, 70, $62 SOLD pending funds

Can't believe the continual lowering of the price for a nice piece of Soligen steel.

This should make for an excellent blade for a beginner or experienced user as well. This is an old Boker, not one of the new Bokers.

I'm always happy to find old blades with the etching in tact.

Doug, what is the handle material? It's difficult to tell from the pics.

It is a celluloid I would guess.

I wanted it... just overspent a little this month. So... what is the significant difference between the old Bokers vs the new ones?

To be honest I am not positive the difference, if there is one. I was just pointing out this is a vintage boker.

Blade shape and scales are the most obvious difference. But beyond that, I would say that the steel used in the vintage version is likely to be of a better quality.

So where were you when I needed you to convince me to pull the trigger on that sale, already, Attila???

Congrats to the buyer. And I'm glad you found one, finally, Doug.
