As Mick the knife in too many bloody encounters I find the powder works better and is less painful than the other nostra (nostrums).

I have considered a tourniquet but could not decide where to apply it.

OUCH! Once I read shavette and the back of you neck and I began to cringe. I wish I had a stypic pencil 35+ years ago when I first start shaving. Would have been better than TP on my face.

I had a styptic pencil when I first started wet/traditional shaving a little over 5 years ago. 
First shave was a bloody mess. Pencil did nothing but burn. I started to look for a rope and a stick to make a tourniquet.
Thought better about that decision.  Pressure did the job but took a long time. A about a Year ago I discovered a powdered styptic.It comes in a little tubular bottle.
Turn it upside down. Give it a little shake. Remove the cap and press opening lightly against fatal wound. Repeat if necessary.
Very little sting and works quickly. It is called  Infalab Magic Touch Nick Relief Powder.

Ouch! Those Shavette blades can really slice you good.

New to the art. Wouldn't a straight razor have the capacity to cut you far worse than a shavers? It's one of the reasons I've started with a shavers...

I realize this is a question asked about 10 months ago, but the answer is "no."  I think a shavette is more likely to give you a bad cut than is a straight razor.

I use an alum block after shaving, if I do get a cut then I'll get out the Styptic Pencil, for a weeper the block seems to seal it all up lickity split.
