    We've discussed this topic before and we had one concensus: don't try to fool the folks at the airports by disguising the razor by hiding it in a subterfuge in a carry-on bag. They'll find it and interrogate the hell out of you. You'll have to check your bag or use a disposable.

    Just my two cents.

    FWIW I can't even *imagine* trying to fool anyone at airport security. In this day and age, I'd rather stick my finger in a 220V outlet than try and do something stupid like that.

    There are lot's of good, inexpensive travel brushes on the market. However, if you don't want to spend any more cash, ask your pharmacist for a large pill bottle. Pay a buck or two. Drill holes in the end and you can store your brush there. If you are traveling and use a hair dryer, nothing wrong with giving the brush a 2-3 minute drying cycle. Use cool air. Forget trying to take a straight OR a Feather on the plane. Blades are not allowed, period! Get caught, well, see ya!

    One idea I came up with the other night that I want to mention again. If you travel with a hanging strop...use a zip tie to attach it to the motel room door. NOT the bathroom door. This way, to leave your room, you have to see the strop. No point in leaving it behind.

    Good point Robert, additionally, we need to make it clear that the days of "interrogating" people are gone. You'll more likely be facing time in a Federal prison and paying a moderate financial penalty. It would be a coup if you could plea down to a probationary period and a fine of under $1,000.

    Sorry if you thought that. Wasn't my intention at all.
