    Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

    That's a nice one. I thought you were in a Stephen King movie. I have a Feather Artisan and I've lost my share of blood as well.

    Wife had started talking to me and I turned my head. Should have locked the door.

    I've been lucky to only cut myself a few times... but everytime it's on my cheeks, the flattest easiest spot, and always because I wasn't concentrating. Good reminder to always keep our wits about us with an object that sharp near the face

    Default Shave Test gone sideways

    So I am trying the fourth of four razors I had honed yesterday...changing razors as I work through the shave during the first pass.

    #4 is the test is a 9/16 - 5/8 Anchor Brand Maganese Steel Square point..
    I had done this exact same cut to myself a year or so ago when I was learning the Feather system.
    Like that time I lost my focus on skin tension for a split second.
    And yes, that is a flap of skin hanging down...

    It's not the razors fault, but I know one razor that is now moved to the: "Player to me named later"....

    I will be having my first go at straight razors in the morning. Five of my boys wanted to get up in time to watch, but I let them watch a video of Lynn's instead so I could try to learn without all the pushing and shoving in a small bathroom. Besides, I am going this route for the relaxed pleasure I hope to enjoy. Wish me luck! (And thanks, Lynn, for helping out with the boys on this one!)

    Default Revenge of the Cartridge Razors!

    This was some time back but I just saw this Thread and thought I'd join the Crimson Crowd here. Still not exactly sure what happened... I think I moved/turned my head as I was going over the crest of my skull... The result was two of the three blades dug in hard and cut out two fillet-shaped chunks of skin about half the size of a thumbnail!

    But, I've since switched to DE Shaving for my Head and all has been great since!

    Its been a while, but let your guard down for a second and.....

    Freshly honed Tenk, great shave but got a little too close to the ear with the square point
