    I usually bleed. but I,ll knock on wood and say my nicks and cuts have gone away over the last couple of years,, just slow down and you wont have to worry. if the blade is properly sharp, and your stretching the skin and using the right angle, its really kinda hard to cut yourself. a lack of attention does it most of the time. or when your new trying to take on too much at one time Tc

    I tried super glue one time on one that wasn't bad but just wouldn't stop weeping. Like the top of a pimple. I used super glue for archery fletching and it was a little old....

    As the picture shows it worked but not pretty. I had much fun at archery leagues that night! It worked and no scar but I wouldn't recommend it.

    About a year ago, I got a rather nasty nick at the edge of my upper lip where it joins the stache area. I was using a DE for the shave rather than a straight. I decided that it would be best not to shave my stache area until the nick healed completely. By the time it healed, I had a decent looking mustache that I decided to keep. I will keep it through Movember, but may shave it off before the end of the year.

    if it's a small one, carry on, if it's something that will be noticed by other people the next day i call myself "what the hell are you doing stupid careless looser!!!??? pay attention to myself and stop thinking of #####" the unse the pencil and stop the bleeding.. then give a couple f days to close... never had any cut that was seriously, but my main fear is to cut my ear... i hope it never happen.

    good way to prevent cutting (which is mostly for me not payin attention) it to shave when nobody can bother me... and every now and then see the cut of the day thread.. that's FEAR inspiring enough to get my self to concentrate when i-m shaving...

    oh eah.. there's some this too:

    Never tried Neosporin, but Mycitracin works well to speed up healing and prevent scarring.
