I will refrain from gratuitous hipster-bashing here, having faced a fair deal of criticism for having done so in the past. Instead, I will sit here quietly and let folks tee off in the comments themselves. In fact, there might well be a prize for the funniest comment relating to this latest item from the Depths of Uselessness – The Viking Celtic Nordic style straight razor warrior axe.
From the description on Amazon:
Straight razor warrior axe in Viking Celtic Nordic style is an original men’s gift.
Axe Razor is made by hand with the handcarving wooden box. The old world axe razor can become unforgettable present.
It is a real straight razor. It is sharp. It is made of tempered steel
This men’s present will not remain unnoticed since this item is not only hansome souvenier but also practical and useful stuff for everyday care.
Completely handmade. Shaves good as common straight razor!
Steel: tempered HRC 56,58.
Handle: beech wood, carving, copper or brass, waxed cord.
Box: wood, carving, brass.
The size of an axe: 10 cm. x 5 cm.
According to the item’s single review, it would make quite the present for Yule:
The craftsmanship of this item is absolutely stunning! My husband is going to flip when he gets this for Yule! The work and effort that went into this item and how fast it got to me! I can’t praise this item and the craftsman enough. Communication was great, delivery was early and did I mention fast? I paid for expedited shipping but this wasn’t created until I ordered it and again, the item is breathtaking and gorgeous! I’ll submit photos after Yule.
I will pass thank you. I dislike shaving enough with instruments designed for the purpose. Besides, my face and axes don’t mix.
