Figaro is a unique weapon in .
Fallout: New Vegas
A unique variant of the
straight razor, it features a slightly tarnished metal handle with a polished silver blade decorated with ornate etchings. It counts as a holdout weapon and therefore can be smuggled into casinos.

special attack that does 70% damage in Back Slash V.A.T.S. at the cost of 3 fewer action points (requires a Melee skill of 50).

It is possible to
execute Back Slash outside of V.A.T.S. (without the required Melee skill of 50 to perform the move) by initiating a power attack (hold attack button) while moving forward.
Figaro can successfully strike about 445 times from full
condition before breaking.

Behind the scenes
The name is likely a reference to The Barber of Seville, where the protagonist is a barber named Figaro.
The ornate carvings might also be a reference to Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
