Boker Arbolito Straight Razor 5/8" Carbon Steel Blade, Synthetic Handles (140519)
BO140519: Boker Arbolito Straight Razor
Since the beginning of the Boker manufacturing plant in 1869, high quality straight razors were produced in Solingen, Germany. At that time, we were already focused on the usage of nothing less than the best in materials, and it was of the utmost importance to maintain the highest production standards available. With that background, the success came quickly, and this gave Boker straight razors an impeccable international reputation. After World War II, the manufacturing of straight razors gradually came to a stop. Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in our archives about the razor blade product line of that time. More than 100 years later, a new lineup is being manufactured in Solingen, reviving the old tradition. Through 170 individual production steps, the new and exclusive Boker straight razors are created. A guarantor for the highest quality is the successful "finger nail test". Only the edge of a perfectly ground blade can be visibly bent on your thumbnail and returns immediately to its original shape when released. Cheap blades are too thick to do this, and for that reason they are refered to as "axes" by the experts.
High quality cutlery from Solingen, with the familiar tree logo, has maintained a reputation of excellence for generations. Products from the Boker knife manufactory under the brand "Arbolito" (Spanish for "little trees"), remain under high demand as well. This straight razor, "Boker Arbolito," signifies quality. The moisture resistant synthetic handles are decorated with marquetry, expertly placed by hand. The 5/8" blade, from the finest Solingen steel (non-stainless), dons the traditional Spanish milled head. This unique razor is manufactured in more than 120 steps, by hand, in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Delivered in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity. Serial numbered. Item No. 140519.
