    I think this thread can be very therapeutic. Whenever you're feeling down about a nick or cut, just take some time to go through these pages and before long you'll be saying "At least I didn't do THAT!!"



    BTW Welcome to the world of straight shaving!

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    I'm sure I've asked before, what is it with this part of the face. Seems almost all the facial cuts posted are somewhere around the ear or jaw joint.
    When shaving close to the mirror, the earlobe area seems to be out of range for good binocular vision. You're seeing it mostly out of one eye, so depth-perception is poor.

    Also, for me that is where I begin shaving. I've cut my earlobe a couple of times now and in addition to the depth-perception thing, I think it may have something to do with not yet "being in the groove" when taking the first couple of strokes.

    My sideburns are as low as my ears so that solves that problem.

    Well guys, I'm in my 2nd month of shaving with a straight here and just gave myself my first real gash - I've nicked myself a few times, but no real cuts.

    I was using a Pipe razor with a barber notch for the first time and nicked myself with the lower edge of the notch. I guess I was a little spoiled by my Boker King Cutter that has a round point and got in the bad habit of rotating my hand away from my face...hence, the gash!

    Anyways, many thanks to tylerbrycen for cleaning and honing this razor for me! Also, apologies if this picture is sideways as all of my photos have uploaded sideways

    If that's the first real on in two months you are doing great! I have been shaving with a straight about that long and i've had quite a few of those!

    Hopefully it will be the last...until I try a spike I already know that will draw some blood - I'm guessing by the ear as many before me have had that experience, but you never know!

    I've been cutting myself less since I started shaving while standing up.

    My first shave with a straight pointed blade resulted in this. Still have some practicing to do with my left hand!!

    Ok so its not a ahaving cut, but I did it with a straight. I am in the process of cleaning up a frameback and was sanding away and got myself pretty good, its about an 1/8" deep and almost an 1" long, under my thumb nail too. Im pretty sure it cannot be stiched so super glue is on its way. Check it out!!Name:  thumb slice.jpg

    Got this one a few weeks ago. First cut since I bought my first real straight over a year ago!
    This had better not jinx me for tomorrow's shave.
