    Well, yeah, I could shave my face with my santoku, if I really had to. But why would anyone need to do something like this if they hadn't just escaped from prison?

    I've used a bit of water on a rough spot for a touchup, but I don't think I'd want to do it for the whole face.

    More power to you if it works out.

    True that. We could all technically shave with small, fruit knives if we wanted, as they'd do the job, but why would you? I have a very nice safety razor that makes sure my shave is smooth and comfortable.
