Every week, I mean I prefer even the smallest nick not to be shown
And yeah, I get nicks from time to time (We all are, aren't?)

Don't even own one. In about a year of wet-shaving, I've nicked myself hard enough to draw blood maybe 2-3 times. If it doesn't stop by the time I finish shaving, I stick on a bit of good ol' toilet paper for a couple of minutes and I'm good to -- uh, er -- go.

There is one in the shaving drawer but I havent needed it since going to a straight razor. I had thought it was going to be just the opposite, but that hasnt been the case, except for a few nicks in the first months.
