I can't resist vintage Bokers, never had one that would not take a fine edge. Brought this one home today. I'll clean her up and give it a honing tomorrow. Looks like a new ride for the Sunday shave.

That is the best I can do with my limited skill set. The scales are now off and am waiting for a set of new replacement scales. The originals had a poorly repaired crack at the wedge pin on the off side. That was driving nuts even though it was secure just looked awful.

A very nice find for sure! They are almost always of the finest steel and tempering. Enjoy!
