Default Straight Razor - 11-17-2010, 10:03 PM

Hey what is a straight razor called in Pashto? I'm talking about the kind the barbers use back home to shave heads and stuff. We use the word ustra, but that is Turkish is origin, coming from the Turkish word ustura.

I do know that a strop (the leather thing you hone razors on) is called a paRaq.

If anyone knows, please post it here. Thanks.

We use chaara.


Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620
