This is my tip of the hat to @andrewdoeshair @iamdanielwinter and of course @barberbrianburt as Andrew says there are times where I use my metal oster guards for many of my cuts. But I am always trying to better myself with my clipper over comb and my scissor work. I learned a lot from an old traditional barber and he once said if you can’t do it with scissors you can’t do it at all. While this is not completely true I have always loved the philosophy behind it. I always want to learn better ways for better clipper and scissor control and I will keep striving till I get better and better. I’ve been doing a lot of cuts latley where I am only using up to a 1 1/2 blade and the rest scissor work. So here is my father in my 1890s koken and these are the only tools I used to do his flat top. My oster fast feeds, andis outliner, @hanzonation hanzo scissors and texturizers, and my combs! So here’s to you fantastic gentleman. Working as hard as I can to get you your level one day!
