From the do-as-I-say, not-do-as-I-do department. . .
I've often cautioned that 'dull' blades that struggle cutting whiskers can easily cut you. This was reinforced tonight as I was cleaning a razor, and noticed blood dripping on the bathroom counter. Yup, I suffered a small cut (that bled like crazy) on my ring finger.
This was with a 'dull' blade, and I didn't even feel it. No pain or sting 'at all'. I must have done it somehow, when removing the blade and putting it in the blade bank. A little styptic and some direct pressure staunched the bleeding. Anyway, I just caution everyone to be attentive when handling blades.
