Comments about Duluth Trading Shave Cut - Block of Alum:

I have used this for a couple weeks now and I am still not sure if it does anything. It seems like it reduce bleeding but its not magical and still takes a couple of applications. It does burn like heck though.

Not as good as a tourniquet

Best Uses

  • Ocassions Of Urgency

Comments about Duluth Trading Shave Cut - Block of Alum:

I have just enough hair on my head to be an agravaltion and the price of a hair cut is the same as for a full head. Soap and razors are cheaper so I have maintained the Kojak look pretty much back to the day people knew what that meant. Now that gives me a lot more skin surface area to shave. None of it is flat and half of it is hidden from view. On ocassion, in a rush I will get a tiny nick which will turn into a torrent. This of course happens when you jahve the least amount of time to tend to it. Here's the choices: Toilet paper patch which you will forget and your cloeset friends at work won't mention or this little alum block. No need being the office entertainment, is there?

    Has merits

    • Clear Alt To Styptic Pen

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Duluth Trading Shave Cut - Block of Alum:

        This product does not work as well as a styptic pencil to stop bleeding, but I would recommend it because it doesn't leave the powdery white residue like styptic pencils. This is a small block at a big price, but it appears it will last much longer than the average styptic pencil which are much cheaper. I shave with an electric razor, so I don't suffer any razor nicks. I use this for all the other nicks and minor cuts I get on my hands and face from working in the garden.

              Comments about Duluth Trading Shave Cut - Block of Alum:

              Block of Alum really works. A slight sting when first applied, but bleeding stops almost immediately. No more having to use facial tissue "forever and a day" to stop bleeding. Thanks Duluth Trading for providing this product and continue selling it please.

                does what I wanted it to do, stops the bleeding and skin irritation. but was really surprised at the size of the block, seams a lot smaller than what the picture makes you feel but so far seems to do what was advertised.
