Barbers were masters of the street. Elaborate showmen, these rogues possessed quick wits and sharp tongues. Any gold they couldn't talk a customer out of could always be stolen by deft hands. These men and women were always a good source of gossip or for obtaining serious information.
All kinds of equipment were available to barbers, but they almost always had access to a full barbering kit with a sharp razor.
Barbers were adept and figuring out the functions of magical items.
Barbers lacked experience in many skills common to other thieves because they had to spend so much time mastering their barbering crafts, sometimes even attending formal classes.
