About three years ago I chopped off my hair with a tanto. For research. And fun. To help other writers who might need to include this in their stories, I recorded the process.
This past summer I repeated the exercise with a slightly different technique and a freshly sharpened sword (it’s classified as a large tanto or a small wakizashi).
Fantasy writer doing research. Now I can write what I know and know what I write… regarding cutting one’s hair with a sword anyway.
