From the “I don’t quite know what to say” file comes a bit of lighter fare. Nguyen Hoang Hung, a Vietnamese hairdresser in Da Nang, decided that cutting hair with 11 pairs of scissors at once had become passe and decided to focus on a single tool. His choice of tool is a bit atypical to say the least. My Nguyen has taken to wielding a Wakizashi as he whacks women’s coifs.

From Distractify:

“About four years ago, Hung participated in a game show that required him to cut hair with a handsaw. After the show, he decided to try his hand at haircutting with a katana. He practiced cutting hair on training wigs to master his unique technique. Starting with longer hair and eventually progressing to a level of mastery that would allow him to create a pixie cut, Hung now works exclusively with a Wakizashi (a razor-sharp Samurai sword typically used for fighting in close quarters).”

One can only hope that this inspires internet copycats. The resulting fails could break YouTube.

    His cologne? Hai Katana.

  3. He is freakishly good at that though. The .gif loops in the Distractify piece are strangely hypnotic.

    Hi Clay! Perhaps a slogan “Differential tempering, preferential treatment, only the best at Swords and Styles, where we’re always slashing prices (among other things)”
