Dorko’s are simply put, first class razors. So good that the business still exists to this day. Yes it’s true, you can still go and buy a new dorko razor today. However the new ones in my own personal opinion are not as good as the originals. Similar to Boker razors, the new ones look cheap and mass produced. This one came from France and I was able to give it a new life.
The razor has been polished and honed. It leaves some pitting marks on the blade,spine and tang. The scales are intact. Box is original.
The present-day enterprise developed out of a plant founded in 1920 by Friedrich Dorten in Solingen-Merscheid which initially produced only barbers’ razors and
mainly supplied Solingen exporters. Constant growth, however, made it advisable for the firm to start exporting on its own. Soon other articles of the cutlery industry
were added to the selection of products. After the Second World War Friedrich Dorten jr. joined the firm and the name was changed to “DORKO Stahlwarenfabrik Dorten & Co.”.
The expansion of the factory made it possible also to increase the range of products, which now included scissors, shaving utensils, manicure and pedicure implements.
Particular attention has always been paid to quality, a fact that has made DORKO renowned throughout the world.
Today Robert Dorten represents the third generation of the family.
