    Almost every barbershop in town uses this type of razor. I'm sure they can point you in the right direction.

    It's called a (cut-throat razor)
    Sweeny Todd used them to kill his customers to make pies, you know the play.

    Hope next time when having hair cut, be careful the barber does not smell of rum

    I am surprised but my barber told me the same thing; they buy the razors from Manila. However, he told me that he would be willing to order for you. They cost under P500 each. If you are interested, just let me know and I can put you in contact with him. My barber is in Valencia.

    Follow-Up. I went back to my barber to get my son's haircut. The guy that orders his supplies will be visiting his shop tomorrow morning. If you are interested, just let me know and I will order the razor for you. They have the items shipped here by LBC from Manila so should only be a couple days. Problem is, I will have to front the money and I don't even know you. I don't mind doing it if you are sure you will buy the razor. I can also bring it to Dumaguete (if that is where we can meet) since I am in town almost every day. Just let me know as soon as possible.
