I was afraid to use my cheap mandolin to shred the brussels sprouts, so I sliced off the bottom, peeled the top two or so leaves, slice then in half the skinny way (they're always a little flatter along one axis), and then just sliced as thinly as possible. I found that having a flat side to lay them down made it so easy and quick, without the fear of them leaping out of my hands, and my fingers going under the knife instead.

You could in a pinch, although I prefer not to -- they end up finely chopped rather than shaved.
