Eventually the styptic did stop it, but it took about 15 minutes, and I had a nice mess of crusty blood in the corner where nose meets cheek all day. Worst part was I'm getting over a nasty cold and I had to be super careful blowing my nose not to wipe the scab open and start it bleeding again.

Not sure why the hate for the Wilkinsons. I ordered mine online - didn't even know Walmart sold DE blades. Granted, my other experiences are some kind of generic Walgreens blades which are horrible, and Gillette 7 O'clock platinums from Russia, which are just okay. I need to try some others.

I do keep my Mach 3 around for traveling as well as to clean up around my ears on occasion.
