    Default Gnarly scar . . .

    Gentlemen:

    I am fortunate enough that, aside from a rare tiny nick, I have managed to get away without major cuts with the double edge. The straight razor as well. I am humble before a double edge as I am with the straight. Maybe that's why.

    Regards,
    Obie

    Never scarred myself while shaving, but I did knick myself a LOT more often with a DE than I do now with straight razors.

    My merker futur gave me a dent in the chin which i still have, the blade litterally dug a chunk out, it also sliced my nose open once.

    Can't say that I have...

    But of course I've always been very careful with sharp things. I heard too many stories as a child from my father, who was an M.D. and surgeon, about people he had to sew up who weren't.

    Like Obie, I haven't had any major lacerations with any of my DE's...... actually, nothing more than a couple of weepers, which is a rare occurrence. This is all a bit surprising for me, as I tried straight shaving first and totally skipped the DE stage; I was far too scared of DE's to start with them

    I remember shaving with dads DE when i was about 10, I lathered up and took it off just like dad did.. Mom and dad wondered where all the scratches on my face came from.. I hadn't even noticed...of course there was no hair to cut. They got a good laugh about it, and i've not tried one since (more than 40yrs now) , I have jumped from modern to str8 now however.

    Default Unfortunately, yes

    On my third all time de shave I cut myself on the far left side of my neck. I now have a 3/4 inch scar (it will probably be visible for quite a while). It poured quite a bit of blood as well. I simply reverted to my old ways of shaving with a cartridge razor and got lazy. Won't make that mistake again.

    Not from a DE safety razor but I did get a whole necks worth from a Plastic cartridge safety razor before I knew about DEs. Good lord was it bad. It looked like I slid on blacktop using my face and neck as a break!.

    I've never done more than nick myself with a DE occasionally.

    My deepest cut was on my finger. Only minor nicks on my face. So far.
