Traditional Japanese Barber Shave

Interesting video showing a third generation Japanese barber giving a very thorough haircut and shave. It interests me how little shave spa is used with the straight razor. It strengthens my argument that shave lather is for slickness and clearing away cut whiskers and “cushioning” is a recent myth propagated by the shave community.  While your at it, check out the cool scuttle the barber has.  I like this design.
