ON THE 11TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS

The man who has everything probably doesn’t have a koa wood-handle razor. Martin & MacArthur offers solid koa razors using its private stock of Big Island koa wood, sourced only from fallen trees.

Each koa wood handle is lathe-turned individually by one of the company’s master craftsman. The contoured razor barrel is designed and crafted for balanced, effortless grip. A coat of premium marine varnish is used to waterproof the wood.

Individual razors are $145. A badger brush is $120, and a kit comprising a razor, badger brush and stand runs $385 to $395.
