God i HATE it when i knick/maime myself shaving! Best thing I ever discovered - you know that anaesthetic stuff you put down a cats throat before intubating it? (I cant remember the name of the drug right now...) but its a vasoconstrictor, and you just squirt a bit of that on and it stops the bleeding! Its FANTASTIC!
