SCP-XXXX outside of containment.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is wrapped in a white cloth, contained within a stainless steel container. Level 3 clearance is required for any removal of the objects from the container or for transport of the objects within the container.

Personnel wishing to handle the objects must have Level 3 clearance to proceed and must be evaluated by a psychiatrist before handling.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a set of 7 hobby knives, measuring approximately 13.5 centimeters in length. Each has a stainless steel blade of various shapes, all measuring 2.5 centimeters long; and a cylindrical handle made of stainless steel, except for SCP-XXXX-1 which posseses a plastic handle and a longer, chisel-like blade.

SCP-XXXX was recovered on █/█/2007, from a house in [REDACTED], Miami, Florida; after local residents reported rancid odors emanating from the building. Upon investigation, SCP-XXXX was recovered by local police alongside several non-anomalous surgical and non-surgical tools. Over [REDACTED] bodies were also recovered in the investigation. It was discovered that the owner of the house and retired plastic surgeon, had been experimenting on captured individuals with the knives and surgical equipment in order to sculpt their face until he created his image of 'perfect beauty', which was consistent with the perfect, or golden ratio.

The surgeon was found dead in his basement, his face mutilated and SCP-XXXX-1 beside his body. Several experimental logs1, assumed to be written by him, were recovered onsite, all which resulted in the deaths of the test subjects.

Any instance of SCP-XXXX, when used on the self, has the ability to guide the users hand in order to sculpt their face until their facial features align with the 'golden ratio', or 1.618. When this process is occurring, the user feels varying levels of pain from the wounds inflicted, depending on which instance of SCP-XXXX is used. The usage of SCP-XXXX on the self will also result in the loss of memory, the severity depending on which instance of SCP-XXXX is used. The user may also not discontinue the process once initiated, meaning intervention from an outside source is the only way to stop the procedure part of the way through.

Experiments with Class-D personal showed that SCP-XXXX-1 results in no pain being felt during the procedure, with it also completing the procedure the fastest; however subjects using SCP-XXXX-1 experienced total amnesia, often remembering just their name, age or the name of a significant other. Further experimentation showed that SCP-XXXX-7, which possesses the smallest blade, resulted in all of the pain from the procedure being felt, but little memory loss. Experiments with SCP-XXXX-7 caused extreme distress in the subjects, resulting in unconsciousness, during which the subjects hand would still continue with the procedure.

Following is a list of some of the documents recovered from the site of investigation.
