    I have the same issue. If they're being pesky, I stretch the skin to where I can reach them and pull the razor (DE or straight for that matter) with the opposite hand from ear to chin. If I don't stretch it enough I get irritation, but if I get a good stretch I can get them off and still feel good.

    Hope it helps!

    Peace,
    Jim

    Well I guess I got ahead of myself this morning going for that BBS. I did WTG XTG & ATG. It's smooth alright but I really hacked my neck up this go around. I have been doing so good too. LOL guess that's what styptic sticks are for, didn't really slice cut myself anywhere just don't have the XTG down think that's what got my neck.
    Input?

    my neck is definitely more sensitive than other areas of my face (and thus more prone to razor burn), I think if you experiment with an extremely light touch on your xtg/atg passes or maybe cut down on the number of passes you perform in the irritated areas, you will probably end up with a more comfortable and still very smooth shave.

    I've found on my own neck that I get a lot less burn if I'm sure to keep the angle very very flat to my skin. That and stretching and doing my best to make doubly sure that I'm not using any pressure at all. Those three things made a huge difference.

    Thanks guys I think I need a little more experience before I continue with that three pass shave. On the good side if I can get it down I may be able to get away with every other day shaves, that would be sweet since the job requires a clean shave.

    Good beard prep will really help as well. For me hot water wash and a hot towel really soften up the beard and make shaving a great experience. Different soaps/creams can also make a big difference, for me a tallow based soap works the best. Try a few different ones

    I think I've got the angle down now. I can do a pass as fast as I used to with M3 now.
