    I should hopefully be starting Barber school here in PA, where the non-shavette shave is still allowed. The school told me they DO teach straight shaving as well as straight hair cuts, etc.

    I will let ya know if they teach stropping...will be interesting for sure

    I hate to be the fly in the ointment,but it that was a live human I think we would be seeing a lot of blood,If this is the best he can do I think I missed my calling.not only did I shave my father at 20 years of age but after that I had to shave his barber just to prove to him I could,my technique might not be as polished as his,but neither of them had any complaints,and that was 24 years ago

    You missed your calling. It's true though, it isn't a person and that makes a big difference.

    He is teaching how to shave someone else at a more strategic/process level. It is common to inadvertently think that when someone teaches something that they are teaching everything about a subject.

    Using a dummy has a lot of disadvantages. If you did some of that stuff to a real person there would be trouble. It would make more sense to put a human in the chair, but then you'd need another instructor/volunteer. Either way you wouldn't learn enough to actually shave someone with a straight razor.
