What kind of stupid shit is that?
I wonder if TSA's relaxation of the knife rule will make it possible to take safety razors through security now?


Edit: guess not. The regs still say razors are not permitted

That "non locking" part of the new TSA regs is bullshit, but at least I can take something with me now.

Thanks, guys. My shaves are much more comfortable now.

I'm considering picking up a safety razor and ditching the plastic Mach razors.

FWIW, I get a better lather on the soap with a hot brush. Just give it a quick soak in a cup of boiling water -- either nuke a cup for 30 sec or I pour two cups when I'm making tea -- and you get that nice warm to hot lather like you'd get in a shop.

I find it gives a bit of help with my skin, which is by no means perfect and makes the shave better and more enjoyable.

I picked up a badger brush this past weekend. I just ran some scalding hot water over it before I lathered up.

Even with a cheap blade it was still one of the best shaves that I've ever had.

I've been using a brush and soap for a couple of months now. It took a while to get used to, but I'm surprised at how much better the shave is. I don't know if its the heat or the bristles, but there is less irritation and a closer shave. Go figure.
