    Checked luggage, you can usually get away with blades. But many places sell de blades...

    Where in Jersey are you? I'm not far from New Brunswick.

    Making a face map seems crazy when you're first starting, just trying to figure out how to hold this huge blade in order to shave each spot *somehow* let alone in a particular direction. However, that's really the secret to a close shave once you're comfortable with the process overall.

    Remember, your shave likely doesn't have to be smooth to the touch, just smooth in appearance.

    Edit: You didn't mention that you are stropping between shaves. Are you? It's important to do so to maintain your edge.

    Hey, i am based in Jersey City.... Yeah, Stan Wilson actually told me about the facemap... I didnt have the cuts yet but my technique needs a lot of refinement... Perhaps we should catch up some day for meet and greet.... Its always nice to put faces to names
