I got my steel, okay. You have all that, very good.
Hey guys! How are you doing? Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com today and I want to talk to you about my favorite razor.
Now, a lot of the cuts, these angled bobs and all those stuffs, everybody is using scissor. It’s almost easy but razor cut is coming back in a menacing way. I love it. It’s great but it’s a tool that often is misunderstood and not always, you know, people go in the hair shop to get a cut. Is he going to bring that out, use all the scissors or use one of his razors? It makes it exciting, you know what’s falling in but overall the years of cutting hair, I’ve got a few favorites. So, I’m going to show you what they are here but I have a true favorite which we’re going to do at the end.
The old original, the one I started out with and I don’t know if you could see this. This is a little swivel razor. You put your little pinky or your ring or you’re ex-wife ring, whatever finger through here and this thing swivels around. It’s got the blades in here, the only problem with this one; the blades were difficult to get your hands on. Once it’s dull, the swiveling thing kind of got on my nerves and I just didn’t like this one. So, it’s a good razor. I’m not knocking it but no, it is definitely not my favorite razor.
A few years back, way back in the day, they came out with this carving comb. I love the carving comb. Paul Mitchell had a carving comb. Few of the companies had a carving comb. Check this out, can you see that? You got that one? It was like a comb on one side with the blade on the inside. On the other side is a notching tool. So, if you’ve got the hair, you comb to it, this would just razor out the hair nice. If you turn it over, immediately when you comb through, it would razor in holes like channels, like a channel cut.
What else I love about this? It takes the standard razor blade. You see that? Let me get the light on that, so you can really get a whole look at that one. It had this channel in here. I could pull this out and it came with this little bear claws or something and you could pull this out in your razor. It will fit and out. This is a basic personna razor blade. These things are great. You get a pack of 10 for $4.00 and they’re affordable. They’re made in the USA only. I don’t use a foreign stuff that much. You can see right on there. You’ll see Made in the USA. And then you lock it on.
What’s great about this? Look. You can’t hurt yourself, right? Don’t do that at home kiddies. But it’s a bugger if you’re trying to commit suicide. It’s not going to help you but wonderful. You can not cut yourself, great razor blades to start razor cutting for all you young hairdressers out there. It’s got a nice handle on it. It’s hard to come by now. They were hot a few years back and now, you almost got to steal them if you see them.
It’s one of my tops but still not my favorite. My number one razor and it is the classic, stole this off my mom, she’s about 118 years old. They’ve been around so long. This is the Feather. You’ve all heard of the Feather razor. This is the classic Feather razor. Beautiful solid handling there, ring, it’s got the -- you know what they call this? That little thing at the end? You think that’s a tail, right? It’s not a tail. That’s called the tang. A great razor, super sharp and it has the built-in guard. I know, try not to laugh. It’s got the built-in guard there, so you can not cut your self. Super sharp.
Their blades, now, I got to tell you, you got a ten pack of their blades. It comes in one of these wonderful little packages here. These are called Ja Tai. They’ve been around for everybody. I don’t think you’ll really pronounce Ja Tai correctly, better say Feather razor.
So, here’s what’s great. You get a ten pack of these blades, when you cut yourself with a razor, it’s when you change the blade. You just pop it in there like that and it already comes and if you slide back in, easy breezy, you’re back in action. Good stuff. I don’t cut myself with the razor when I’m cutting hair. I cut myself with a razor when I’m changing the blade. Guys, if there’s a razor out there by far, it’s always the classic stuff. I love the Feathers. My mom loved it. I loved it. You’re going to love it. Try one out. See if you can get your hands of one of those little comb razors to steal one of these. Paul Mitchell got one too I think. Still went off of them too.
