Not if you respect your razor and pay attention. Any type of shaving involves pulling a sharp blade along your skin, so there is always potential for a nick. The common disposable drugstore razor has dull blades; this means you rarely cut yourself, but it also means you get razor burn, ingrown hairs and have to buy a new razor every couple of shaves. Our razors use sharp, individual blades. They cut hair cleanly without dragging on skin. It is important to learn the weight and length of your razor and respect that it can cut you if you don’t take the time to learn what you are doing. Wet shaving is an art form and skill. It’s not difficult to learn, but it is important to know what you’re doing.
