I placed a fresh Astra SP in my SS today, half way through my first pass my hand-eye coordination fell to sub zero, and I managed a small cut (~3mm) on my lip. It bled like I had been in a bar fight.
I reckon I had three options.
1. Stop shaving, wash up, look for some superglue and fix the problem. Then not shave for a month while I got over it.
2. Run around the house looking for the camera - the amount of blood was unreal.
3. Keep shaving. Throw some cold water on it to stem the bleeding, and re lather for pass two, then three.
So I chose option 3, the blood flow slowed and I got a really nice shave, with zero nicks (apart from the aforementioned manifestation of my numpty skills).
Just a reminder for me to take it slow and concentrate on shaving. (I may or may not have been thinking about Miranda Kerr at the time ).
Thought I'd share - I dont mind making a bit of a fool of myself so the other Noobs dont have too!
