Let's be real for a minute. When you are shaving with a safety razor or a straight razor, or even a cartridge, we all cut ourselves from time to time. It's okay - it doesn't make you any less of a man. When it happens though, it is best to be prepared to take care of the nicks right away. Styptic pencils are perfect for large nicks and cuts to stop the bleeding quickly, whereas alum blocks are great for smaller nicks and razor burn. We would highly suggest adding one or both of these products to your cart. At some point you will be glad you did!

Great stick
WCS Basics Alum Stick Easy to use works great. I think it's best value for the money from WCS.
Bloc Osma Alum Block "It's a block of alum - not really sure what else needs to be said! ; )

Works great, and the wide flat surface glides across my face smoothly. Nice upgrade from a styptic pencil.
Does the Job
Osma Styptic Pencil, Hemo Stop
Osma Styptic Pencil, Hemo Stop "Recently purchased this product along with other Pinaud Clubman Products. Just yesterday I recently nick myself shaving (in a hurry) and used the Osma. It did the job it was suppose to do. I would buy this product again. Brad Jordan
WCS Alum Block
WCS Basics Alum Aftershave Bar "The WCS Alum Block is a fantastic product. I'm new to wet shaving and using DE safety razors so I tend to nick myself regularly. I also have quite a bit of irritation after shaving. But using the WCS Alum Block helps tremendously. It stops the bleeding and takes care of all irritation. I'm sold on this product forever. Give it a try. You won't be dissatisfied...
Great Find
Pinaud Clubman Nick Safe Styptic Powder "Finally found a styptic powder, I do not like the pencil type, the powder is dry and immediately stops any bleeding. This really works, put the powder on the tip of your finger or a tissue and touch it to the nick, done. I wipe the area just before applying the powder, any excess can be dusted off so you only have the spot.
RazoRock Alum Stick "High quality alum. Smooth, no rough edges and it doesn't fall apart. Perfect after a straight razor shave, or any shave for that matter.
It's alum, It works
WCS Basics Alum Aftershave Bar "It's hard to go wrong with an Alum block. I usually use the OSMA brand but these were free with a certain purchase level and came with a plastic case which OSMA does not. I've still not received an answer as to whether or not they are a solid block or compressed fragments, BUT, the block is smooth and works well. I have 3 of them and have given 2 away to friends. All three of us have been pleased so far with their effectiveness as well as their durability.

An Alum block is not something you need too often unless you drop it. (it will shatter) You let it remain wet. (it dissolves) so leave the plastic box open after drying the wet side off on tissue or your flank.. It crumbles, cheaper blocks may start to crumble especially on the ends where your fingers hold it.

This block has held up fine for the 3 of us for several months. It is a standard part of my routine. Wipe of the extra soap with a Cottonelle wet-wipe, Cold water rinse, alum block rub on my wet face, let it sit until I clean my brush, bowl and razor, then 2nd cold rinse and apply after shave. As mentioned above, I only close the plastic case when I'm traveling so as to always let the block completely dry. Also NEVER let the block rest on iron or steel the reaction is corrosive.
