A Steppin' Razor is a dangerous person that is not to be messed with, referring to the fact that they are quick to fight. Its origins are unknown, but the term was popularized by the song Steppin' Razor, written by Joe Higgs and recorded by the popular Jamaican Reggae band The Wailers. A number of covers of the song and references to the term have appeared since.

"Walking weapon", as in "I'm a walking straight-razor", don't you watch my size (be mislead by my small stature)
If you wanna live, live
I beg you treat me good
I'm like a walking razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
- Lyrics to "Steppin' Razor by Joe Higgs, recorded by Peter Tosh
