I have seen this done in many movies, & I decided if my carry knife was sharp enough to shave my arm or leg hair, I should give it a try on my face.

I applied the shaving cream, & gave it a good pull across my cheek down to my jaw line. It kind of hurt & & so I gave a few more goings over on the same spot.

I guess it sort of worked, but I re-did the area with my Mach III razor, & I could tell a huge difference in the stubble clearing. I would hate to have to do my whole face & neck with my carry knife, & if it were my only option for shaving I would grow a beard.

Any of you ever try your carry knife for shaving your face?

I shaved with my leatherman wave on a dare once, hurt like hell but actually came away with a halfway decent shave

Have done the whole shave your leg test for knife sharpness. Didn't work as well on the face.

God, it was rough and I DID grow another beard shortly thereafter.

That would work good if your whiskers were more like rope.

No more Crocadile Dundees out there?

Not my face. If SHTF I wouldnt shave at all. I only shave my neck and upper lip anyway

It sucks. Especially with a bowie style knife.

Hot towel first! Then your beard is softer. The question is if you have access to hot towels why are you shaving with your carry knife?
