I attended the Western Buying show in Las Vegas last week. Don Wyland of Purtle barber Supply in St Louis, MO gifted me a copy of his new dvd "Getting it Straight". This is a comprehensive instructional in straight razor shaving. This is a fundamental skill of the barber and one that, sadly, is being lost to the ages. Don's is the best dvd I have seen. His skillful hands and well laid out script take you through the entire process from stropping and honing to skin prep and proper shaving strokes. The dvd touched on customer service, sanitation and even equipment and supplies. I learned to do this in barber school, but never became a master at it. Watching Don made me want to find a guy and practice.
This is a must-watch for anyone aspiring to carry on the tradition of barbering as a professional.

Thank you Don for putting this together for us all to benefit from.
