It seems the market is starting to flood with styptic gauze packs/bandages. They sure look nice and convenient but they don't come cheap.
Styptic pencils can be had for as little as $1. How effective would they be on a larger wound? (Along the lines of 1.5" long and 1/4" deep.)
I have styptic powder, but it's for pets. Would it be acceptable to use in an emergency situation? (Combined with a cheap gauze pad.)
What are your thoughts concerning styptics and various size wounds? (I'm the kind of guy who will wrap tape around small cuts just so I don't have to stop working and deal with the cut later.)
I also saw styptic swabs (by Kutkit) that looked convenient and not too expensive. (About $3/12.)
I can taste your meat from all the way up here.
