Crazy cool! Thanks for sharing. Do you think that was done with just water?

It looks like a dry shave but its got to hurt as the guy has a full beard.

Wow, that guy sure knows how to weild a blade. You could see he used some form of cream or gel as the whiskers bonded to his skin/arm afterwards.

Absolutely amazing. One of my favourite things about travelling the third world is the level of craftsmanship and expertise you see in people performing simple, neglected rituals in many other societies. This man is a true master of his craft! Thanks for sharing and I'll hopefully find this barber/artist on my next Indian adventure...

I was thinking the same Andrew. He'd be the perfect travel companion on business trips. I don't think I ever shaved that quickly when I was still in the dark ages using the latest multiblade razor or electrics.

Might be..... I run a couple of miles most mornings,I head shave & face shave before running,shower after returning from the run.Takes a few minutes to cool down & stop sweating.I use that time for touch ups,seems like a few areas show more whisker when working up a sweat so with a light touch,no lather etc & while still sweating I finish off anything left then jump in the shower.Near the end of the shower I usually run the water cold.

Now that was something. It takes me that long to make lather.

I'm impressed.

Good stuff-

The whole time I watched it,I kept thinking that Barber was probably a trip to the US and a few years of medical school away from being an outstanding neurosurgeon...
