    Default Shaving with stone

    OK, OK, I know that some of the statements here are well, you know . . . but still I got a kick out of watching. Not sure of the quality of the shave, but he did shave.

    Don't try this at home.

    Much too brittle. You can take your face off with that very easily.

    For the fans of "Game of thrones" this is dragon stone he shaved with.

    Fun video, thanks.

    One of the books we used when I took Intro to Anthropology had an article that talked about barbers in Mexico using obsidian to shave customers. Apparently, the barber would have a large chunk of obsidian in the shop and would strike a large flake off for each shave. I don't remember the date of the research but it was in the modern era.

    I thought that too. Surprised he didn't have a drum roll in the background.

    Well, someone had to go there.

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
