I had hernia surgery several weeks back at an outpatient surgical center. When I preregistered the day before, the nurse put a glob of white goo on my forearm while I waited. The next morning when I signed-in for my surgery, the red spot it left earned me a pink wrist band and visit from the surgical technologist lady on my way to the OR who announced her intention to shave me south of the border.
I laid there with my eyes closed waiting for her to finish cleaning the area with a soapy sponge pad hoping to feel a surgical clipper and not shaving foam followed by a cheapest of the cheap disposable shaver being dragged across my private area. I looked down to see how far I was from the moment of truth only to see more half the hair already accumulated on a paper towel. She manuevered a straight style razor around the various twists and turns like a racer car driver at LeMans flipping between freehand and reverse holds as easily and quickly as shifting gears. I would have been amazed had I not been so terrified. The whole process couldn't have taken more than a couple minutes. No nicks, no scratches, and I hadn't been that bare since I was eight if even then.
The reason I share this (hopefully) once in a lifetime experience is to ask if anyone knows anything about the razor, where to get one, and if would be affordable for everyday use or cost a fortunate like other medical items? It looked like a hairshaper without the guide comb. I know it *didn't* use a regular shaper blade that isn't that sharp. I couldn't even *feel* an edge or the slighest pull. It was if she was just wiping off the hair.
