    There have been several topics on it on here but never anything carved in stone that anyone could find but many good points have been brought up about it. It's like what Glen said about it.

    A barber notch was to aid barbers in trimming around the ears and what-not. Actually, as Rez Dog said no one really knows for sure but I thought the "ear thing" was original? Yeah? No?

    Watch the front of the tool

    Struck me as funny, since he really did nothing to shape that, it was cut straight and the notch "Magically" appeared as the blade curved

    It really looks like the older Stubtail Clip point

    So perhaps this is where it all started another theory to ponder

    Wow Glen, that's amazing! They say there's nothing a hammer can't fix. This is the kind of thing that always interests me.
    Thank you very much for sharing.

    I'd like to volunteer Shaun to purchase one of the choppers to actually get a razor edge on it then for him to send it to Steve for a test shave so SRP can claim to be where shaving with a veggie chopper originated.
    Cool video and cool blacksmith...I'll be going back for some more.
