Indian Barber (Quick, clean shave)

Postby RiverValleyTrading » Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:08 am

Very nice video of a barber from India doing a quick. clean shave. Notice how he works fast but does not seem liek he is rushing. Sort of a calm speed that is a hallmark a good barber. Wields the shavette like a surgeon. Impressive.

The speed at which he wipes lather off of the blade is a bit scary, it looks so easy to cut yourself

He deos it so fast that it's hard to see but he is stropping the razor against his palm with the blade edge away. It's fairly safe to do, but to do it at that spees takes some practice.

If I can have that guy here I'd make a killing. I have been dabbling with the idea of getting a barber's chair and setting up at some markets on Saturdays, a good coffee and a shave while the missus is shopping for some fresh goodies. :o:::

@Bundubeard now that would be cool to find at a market!
