    But they have checked...it's only a minor inconvenience...so I'll just keep doing it the right way
    That's why I keep mine in pieces and in a Ziploc bag. That way they can examine all of the pieces without getting their grubby hands on my shaving implements.

    A few weeks back I stopped at the L'occitane store in Charlotte on a layover and grabbed a tube of Cade shaving cream. Then I found out my flight was over sold and I had to wait until the next morning to fly out. They put me up in a hotel but the TSA wouldn't let the Cade back through.

    I do keep the blade out of my shavette and DE in my carry on bag, though.

    I wonder if airport personnel can tell if there is a blade inside the DE? Maybe the blade would show up, ya know?
    From their stillness came their non-action...Doing-nothing was accompanied by the feeling of satisfaction, anxieties and troubles find no place

    Yeah. I was peeved. I got to keep the ASB though. It comes in a sub 3oz tube. I wrote a letter to L'occitane so I'm hoping they take.pity on me.

    Wow - that would be something if they did - worth a try.

    I always travel with a DE. 9/10 times I get checked so I've made it a habit of taking the DE out and opening it before putting it through the Xray. I don't use shaving cream though so I've never had a problem with fluid volume.

    I used to travel quite a bit but never tried with a DE.

    As posted above, it used to be that you couldn't even have a nail file on some nail clippers in hand luggage.

    But within the last couple of years they've reduced the restriction, in Europe at least, to allow up to a 3 inch blade. I don't quite understand why because unless you want a "Call that a knife?" moment, 3 inches must be plenty to cause some trouble.

    Obviously DE blades are under 3 inches so presumably are okay?

    Edit: Okay, just checked. At Heathrow you can have a knife blade up to 6cm (so more like 2.5 inches) and no razor blades. TSA say no razor blades either. My mistake
