Getting a shave Turkish style with a cut-throat razor

Istanbul still boasts many old-school barbers in its side streets who can give you a traditional shave with a cut-throat razor and hot towels. Hair is also removed from the nose and ears.

The shops are popular with locals and go back to the days when many homes did not have running water.

The Travel Show's Henry Golding goes for a shave to see the skill of a traditional barber at first hand.

The Travel Show can be seen on BBC World News and the BBC News Channel.
