According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the fastest barber ever is Denny Rowe of England. In 1988, he shaved 1,994 men in an hour using a straight razor - an impressive rate of one shave every 1.8 seconds. Only four unlucky men were nicked.

Only one of the four was fatally wounded. He died 1.8 seconds later.

Well, that's what you get for standing in line for a free shave. ;)

I imagine they had to be prelathered. Probably the next 10 up were latheredand waiting or somethinglike that?

And I suspect they probably put an ad in the paper, and all the cheapskates were like "Woohoo!"

I don't really think this is a record anyone should beat.

That is some scary, scary talent. And only four nicks - wonder how bad those 'nicks' were?

I dunno. You'd think they wouldn't call them nicks if they were huge ass cuts?

It's reeeeally amazing. I was thinking about it, they must have had like at least 5 sitting at a time, you know, and just had him move down the line?

And by "nicked" you mean "severed ears", right? 1.8 seconds per guy?!? He must have been flailing that razor around like a weed whacker or something.

Straight razors are scary. I wouldn't trust myself with one, much less somebody moving at the speed this guy must have been going.

Wow my hair dresser could take a lesson from him. I went & got my hair cut on Saturday, my appt was at 12, I didn't get out of there until 1:45!! The really great part is either a) everyone hates it or b) no one has noticed as no one has said anything. Actually I had one co worker tell me how long it's getting this morning. I didn't tell her I just spent $50 (Canadian which is like $3216574651351 American)& 1 hour 45 mins getting it cut this weekend.

I wonder if he used a new razor for each guy?
And if he had people helping him cleaning off the razors.
Creepy.

I highly doubt he used a new one, which is kinda freaky now that I think about it.
