Welcome to a whole new way to look at the way we cut hair using a razor. Years ago Donald revolutionized the razor world by introducing the tool we all love The Carving Comb. Now we are taking it to the next level by asking the question “What are the limits in hair design and how do we push them?” The next generation of hair cutting implements is here and it starts with the Chop Stik.
What it is: The Chop Stik is a visionary tool that take the traditional razor and stands it on it head. With the use of the chop stick design we are able to use the tool for much more than a cutting tool. Not unlike its predecessors The Carving Comb, The TDS Twist, and The DSX4 The Chop Stik makes the razor cutting world more user friendly.
What is it used for: The Chop Stik is used for Cutting, Texturizing, Softening, Disconnecting, Parting, Weaving, and any other visionary use you can think of.
How is it used: The Chop Stik can be held a variety of ways while designing your looks. Most common is the pinch grip. By holding onto The Chop Stik much like you would a tooth brush the perfect balance is created to do many traditional razor cutting techniques. The grip and flip hold is going to be used when The Chop Stik is utilized as a parting or weaving tool as well as a cutting tool. The pencil grip is perfect for creating wispy edges or texturizing anywhere on the head to create lift. Beyond these techniques you can come up with many others to expand your own creativity.
When is it used: The Chop Stik is used whenever you want to use a tool that looks and feels differently than your tools you currently use. Parting hair is made simple with the use of the chop stick design. It can be used when the use of a razor is called for to do a full hair design or just add to the design that was created using Scissor, Carving Comb, or The Twist.
