Blade is made of the best Solingen razor steel (high edge retention, non-stainless)
Traditional hollow grind
Historical etching and authentic Boker stamp on the blade
For many years, canvas Micarta has been a well established and approved material for handles of sporting knives and outdoor knives. Generally, Micarta is a compound material, consisting of fabric and epoxy. To produce Micarta, many layers of the medium (canvas) are immersed in epoxy. When hardened, it can be ground in the appropriate shape, and the typical structure of the basic material comes out in a beautiful way. The handle scales of the new straight razor model Tree Brand are made of the very popular green canvas Micarta. Canvas Micarta does not only have an appealing look, it also offers a lot of advantages in use. This material is extremely rugged and provides a very secure and comfortable grip, even with wet hands. The compact 4/8" blade is made of the best Solingen razor steel (high edge retention, non-stainless) and provides perfect handling, even for professional use, with the traditional hollow grind. Also features historical etching and authentic Boker stamp on the blade. Made completely by hand in Solingen, Germany. Comes in historical packaging with a certificate of authenticity.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have always enjoyed the quality of the Boker products. The Tree Brand uses the micarta handle which is sturdy and well made. The 4/8 blade (measured spine to blade edge) is a little narrow to learn with, but it is not impossible. Might be better starting with the Tree Brand Brown Micarta that is 5/8 thick. A little easier to judge the angle of the blade on your face. Just a warning...you will need to invest in a good strop to keep the blade sharp. Possibly some Naniwa sharpening stones as well. The quality straight razors require maintenance...and a slow, steady, thoughtful process while shaving. Take your time and enjoy. P.S. Lynn Abrams of Straight Razor Designs has a few youtube tutorials on using a straight razor. Wise to check it out.
Very good razor.
It's a really good razor for the money.
