I used to have one very similar when I first started shaving back in the dark ages. I remember the trepidation as I tried to shave round all those teenage spots and acne! Ouch! No wonder I my face was covered in bits of torn tissue paper and blots of blood. Not surprising the girls ran a mile when they saw me coming!

The above was me ofcourse. Hazel didnt start shaving until much later! I tried to change this silly comment but the trashcan seems to have gone for a walk?

Have to admit this contraption looks & sounds SCAREY! First time I shaved I managed to snare a huge slice of skin & bled like a little pokey. Wasn't that bad really but I did learn one needs to take certain care with a razor. Can't imagine how you blokes manage not to rip off your noses!
