Why Are Borka Blades So Expensive

Table of Contents

Borka blades are very expensive because of the nature of their construction. Borka is a very expensive material to use for blades. It is sometimes used in high-quality knives, but it is even more valuable when used in razor blades. Borka is a metal that comes from nickel and cobalt ores.

It is often found as small deposits and must be mined and purified before it can be used for blades. That costs money, which means that Borka blades cost more than other types of razor blades.

Borka also has properties that make it more expensive than other materials used in razor blades. First, it has a very low melting point, so it needs to be melted at a low temperature before being cast into shape and reforged into razor blade blanks at high temperatures.

This process makes the reuse of the blanks impossible after they have been forged and sterilized once again to remove impurities. That increases production costs even further, which is why Borka blades are so costly to produce and distribute in bulk quantities because of the difficulty in finding suppliers who can provide them for such an expensive price tag..

Where are Borka blades made?

Borka blades are made in a few different places, but Sweden’s most popular place of manufacture. Since the milling and forging of the blades take place in Sweden, there is no need to export them to China for final processing or assembly.

Borka blades are also made in Japan, Norway, and Switzerland. The manufacturing process may vary between these countries, but they can all be considered high-quality blades producers.

Why are some pocket knives so expensive?

Some pocket knives have high prices because of the material with which they are made. For example, a lot of high-quality blades use Damascus steel. This steel is very expensive because it takes a long time to manufacture. It’s also difficult to work with and requires special equipment.

Another reason some pocket knives are expensive is that they are handmade. Making these items by hand adds cost to production and labor costs that go into the item in general.

Then, there’s the cost of raw materials and their condition before being used for production. A knife with a forged blade will be more expensive than one that has been cast from a molding process, which may require less labor but more raw materials and thus more cost.

All these factors contribute to the final price for your pocket knife, and none of them can be changed once you place an order for it from a manufacturer or supplier.

Who is Sebastian Berenji?

Sebastian Berenji is the founder of Borka, who created the razor blades in 1976. He originally made them for his own use because he couldn’t find anything that was tough enough to shave with. He eventually decided to sell his product, and retailers around the world wanted his blades.

These days, you can find various styles of Borka blades at your local drugstore or supermarket.
Borka blades are such a wildly popular brand because they are an alternative to the more expensive brands that are available on the market.

They provide a clean shave without any irritation and have been praised by many reviewers. It’s no wonder then that these razors are still being sold today!
