Every once in awhile, you get a little reminder that you really need to pay attention while you are shaving.

Yes, you got to be careful - you might get lather in your hair if you don't pay attention Wink

On a more serious note, I've done that myself from time to time - usually when I'm zoning out and enjoying my shave too much to pay attention. Bleeds like a pig, but usually heals fast.

Yes, it is a really tiny cut but, it was a bleeder. I was trying to shave the hair inside my ear which is a mistake with an AC style blade.

I use tweezers.. takes longer, but less bleedy. Keep it clean, and it should heal cleanly.

That is probably the way to go.

Ouch! That’s a bleeder, alright.

My favorite tools for that job are a blunt tipped grooming scissor, or a Trac II. The slim profile of the Trac II is very well suited to cleaning in, on and around the ear.

This guy knows. I use a little Phillips thing... My sharp stuff stays away from anywhere with delicate flesh.

I find the the sharp DE blade makes a cut less painful and much better than a cut from a cartridge razor. 

I have used this trimmer or something similar for years to trim ear hair. Never had even a scratch from it.

I use a MicroTouch, a small battery powered razor for nose, ear, eyebrows and misc sprouts that are out of place. much smaller and more maneuverable than the Wahl peanut.
