    I have the Clubman styptic. It works great, which is important for me as I am on anti-coagulants for life...

    I've got a styptic pencil and alum block. The styptic pencil is what I use. It's accurate and easy to use. It turns out I'm not a fan of alum blocks, but it's there if I need it.

    I prefer a few splashes of cold water. After that I will splash on a little AS or some WH.

    :happy088:Good info thank you. If it is a good slash and all else fails have someone hold it closed and super glue it. Works every time.

    Witch hazel is good stuff. One pointer though is that of you have dry skin stay away at least from the stuff that contains Alcohol. If you have dry skin you can opt for Thayers. Not bad but not as good as Dickinsons, IMO. But in life sometime you need to make compromises.

    I like to make Japanese flags out of bits of toilet tissue.

    Anyone?

    My Dad, a WW2 Vet, was a Japanese Flag artist. He taught me everything there is to know about: How To Use TP to stop the flow. He never called them Japanese Flags though. Too funny! :happy097:

    Quick clotter. That helps when shaving.

    youngunn Where's my TSD aftershave balm???

    Just found this section. Great writeup, I'm a slow clutter. I have to hit it with stypic before I can keep shaving... Inconvenient. I may get some of that stypic gel stuff.

    Thanks!

    Do you guys get white residue on your face from your styptic pencils?

    Yes. Wait 5-10 min after blood stops then gently rinse it away. It's normal and to be expected.
