  • Carbon steel straight razor
  • ⅝” blade

Boker is a renowned blade making company from the Solingen region of Germany. For over 100 years, the chestnut tree logo has been a sign of superior quality and workmanship. Their straight razor blades are still hand-ground and assembled in that famed region.

Boker added the Arbolito straight razor to their lineup in 2012. It's a wonderful 5/8" blade in carbon steel with a full hollow grind and Spanish point. The straight edge is paired with a moisture-resistant black handle with vintage style accents placed by hand. The scales are quite light.

This unique straight razor is manufactured in more than 120 steps, by hand, in the Boker plant in Solingen, Germany. Serial numbered and delivered in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity. While your straight razor will arrive sharp, it might not be shave-ready. Most straight razors are not pre-sharpened from the factory. You can choose to have your razor honed by our honemeister and delivered to you shave ready or left unhoned. Just select your choice from the dropdown menu.

Great shave

I stepped up from a Feather straight razor to the Boker. The Boker is actually more forgiving (less nicks/cuts) and gives an excellent shave. I especially like the Spanish point to get into those difficult areas.

Boker is best

Just ordered this razor and I'm very impressed. Fancy and easy to use and a great close shave. I give this 4 stars instead of 5 because my ultimate and true favorite is the Boker silver steel 6/8. Now that's a razor that's pure perfection. This is a close second in my opinion, Just doesn't top my favorite. This does look really good and it's performance is exceptional. No complaints on any part of this beauty, Well worth the money spent.

Boker 5/8 Arbolito SR

Excellent razor. Light and elegant. Surprisingly great hone, just a quick strop and right to the face. Seemed to shave faster.

Fun to own, fun to use

This razor is beautiful, if slightly delicate feeling. Easy to keep tuned, I cannot say anything bad about this razor. This is a wonderful gift for the man that appreciates the beauty and craftsmanship.


Beautiful craftsmanship and helluva razor

I decided to splurge and treat myself to a world class straight razor. Great decision. Keep this baby honed and stropped and the whiskers come off like butter off a hot knife. Not terribly impressed with the "historical packaging" and the "certificate of authenticity," though. The packaging is just a cardboard box and the coa is just a small slip of paper with a bit of information about Boker. However, what really matters is the razor itself and the Arbolito is outstanding. I love the personalized serial number stamped into the blade. The scales are very light and decorated by hand with embedded inlays. The blade is entirely handmade. The Arbolito is a welcome addition to the stable.
