    I doubt if scissors can shave heads. Shouldn't the above be recast as the following? Your comments? Thanks.

    You are so right!

    However in your second sentence, use "razors" instead of "shaving knives".

    Thanks, Anglika.
    To make sure, doesn't the term "shaving knife" exist?

    Not that I have met if you are talking about shaving the hair of the face.

    The shaving knives I have met are used in woodwork.

    I know if you do an internet search you find the term, but when you look at the images they are often of razors.
