    Default Boker Shaving Video

    I just watched a shaving video from Boker. They did the video in the silent film style which was somewhat entertaining. There was razor grip used @ 6:20 I've never seen before.

    Yup, never saw that grip before either. Seems to quite a bit of going over the same spot several times. Oh well, whatever works.

    Well, I just like watching shave videos and occasionally post a link if I think they are interesting.

    As far as instructional videos go, Lynn Abrams's videos are as good as they get. There is also the barber school video, I think it's called the blue video, that is very good. Finally, I have been been watching certain barbershop videos very carefully to catch tips and techniques. A couple to watch are Alain, master barber of Paris, and Razorguy's new Mastro Livi series.

    I feel obligated to throw out a warning after watching some particularly bad shaving technique in a video yesterday evening. There are a lot of shaving hobbyist and vendors making videos. A lot of them are just plain bad.

    Interesting technique. He seems to have more cream on his vest and the mirror than on his face.....until the end of the video!
