Razor blades

It came up when I was catching up on the last few days of Something Positive, and I can't find the answer online:

Why, when trying to kill yourself, are you supposed to slice down your arm rather than across your wrist? Is it easier to cut deeper? Are you more likely to hit something vital? Is it harder to fix? Do you bleed out faster? What?

I'm sorry, but I didn't know where else to ask.

{ObDisclaimer: Not suicidal, not into cutting, just wondering.)
