Cut-Throat or straight razors are instantly recognizable, they're shape and look an iconic piece of barber history. The straight razor was the cutting edge in shaving for generations but over the last century has been largely replaced by the contemporary safety razor, but we all know the straight razor is still the better looking option!

Shaving with a straight razor takes a lot more skill and precision than other razors and because of this many see shaving with one an art that has to be mastered rather than a simple case of a quick shave. Although not as popular as they once were straight razors are still in every day use and perfect for any would be gentleman, but what is the attraction? ...Yeah if you slip you may lose more than just some hair but still straight razors look awesome, they're classic, timeless and a make you feel like Sweeney Todd. So for all you would be Demon Barbers here are 18 cut-throat razor tattoos, and they're looking mighty sharp!!
