Interesting facts "Why" Why do they say: "cut your nose"

Sometimes, trying to once again warn a person about something important, we use the phrase "cut yourself on the nose." But what does it really mean, and where did it come from?

It turns out that this catch phrase has nothing to do with our nose. It's just that the old days under the word "nose" meant not only the organ of smell, but also memorial plaques on which people made notches or even say notches, so as not to forget about the upcoming affairs that are of great importance to them. So the phrase "cut yourself on the nose" lives on to this day, but its original meaning has lost its meaning.
