* Noticeably averted in ''Literature/InheritanceCycle'' where while training a dragon rider to care for his weapons properly an actual metalsmith points out that you don't want that sharp an edge on most blades, being that fine of a point also weakens the metal by making it so thin it can cut hair meaning the sword in question wouldn't last very long before being damaged beyond the point of usability as a sword rather then a mace.

* I think Witch Hazel may do this in one Creator/WarnerBros short. She certainly mentions that her blade is sharp enough to split a hair. Split a [[IncrediblyLamePun hare?]] EEEEE-heee-heeee-heee-heeee-heeee!

* ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' has a similar joke when Johnny enters a lumber-cutting competition. After a lumberjack splits a hair with his axe, Johnny splits an axe with his hair--[[TooDumbToLive which was still on his head.]]

* In ''[[TortallUniverse Squire]]'', Raoul demonstrates the sharpness of Kel's [[BladeOnAStick naginata]] to Flynn by placing a feather on the blade. It, of course, cuts the feather in half without any effort.

* ''AliBabaBunny'': Hassan manages to chop Daffy's [[HatDamage hat]], the diamond on it, and finally, the hair on his head.
* I think Witch Hazel may do this in one WarnerBros. short. She certainly mentions that her blade is sharp enough to split a hair. Split a [[IncrediblyLamePun hare?]] EEEEE-heee-heeee-heee-heeee-heeee!
* In ''TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad'', Brom Bones intimidates Ichabod during his telling of the legend of the Headless Horseman by slowly splitting a hair off his head with a large knife.
* Played straight and inverted in a ''{{Popeye}}'' short where Popeye and Bluto were competing store salesmen. Bluto shows that his knives are quality with this trope, then Popeye shows how crappy they are by having the hair ''split the knife.''
