Did people put razor blades in hats?

If you think about your grandfather's hat in those days, then it would have had a really tough beak, Mr. Cross said. They used their hats with stitched razor blades to steal from people. The show mentions that the band is called Peaky Blinders because of the razor blade on their flat cap.

In the program, a gang member can headbutt an opponent and blind or injure him with the razor blade sewn into his cap. While the Peaky Blinders were a real band, that's not where they got their name from. This was not fiction, the razor blades on hats were a well-known tool at the time. I know for sure that the instructor at Camp X, the first spy academy in North America during World War II, was known for having razors in his hat and for teaching his students how to cut someone's throat.

TEENAGE knife thugs are copying gangsters from the BBC crime drama Peaky Blinders by sewing razors into their caps, it has been claimed.
