I'm shaving with a straight for nearly an year now and still having trouble getting BBS there. Here's a few tips I learned, but before you read please take into account I have an angular face, it may not work the same for a round plump one: stretch your neck as far as you can. Place a grip on the lower neck somewhere top keep the skin tight. If your prep involves a lotta hot water your skin will sweat and be slippery, I use a barber towel so my fingers won't lose the grip when the blade's on the skin. Next check the direction your hair's growing towards. Under he jaw bone the hair will not have the same growth direction as the whiskers or the chin. At least that's what mine does. To go ATG you will need to be extremely careful and watch out so the nose of the blade doesn't dig into your jaw bone. In my opinion ATG is the only way to get a very smooth shave there. I know there's a lot of guys opposing ATG on the grounds that WTG and XTG provide BBS just as well, but that comes after years of experience. Until then I strongly recommend ATG in the jaw-neck area.

    On the other hand, BBS in that spot leads to irritation in my experience. I do not insist too much on it and if there's a little hair left it's barely noticeable, probably only your dance partner will see it if she looks really close. That's especially because the face curves inward and it's hidden from view.

    Hope it helps.

    Jimmy, just checked the abbreviation listing. Other than LOL, TSMFATD WKW and ALH are not listed. Any idea what they mean? Never have run across them before.

    Well guys the joke of the day. I got new razor in and I was examining it (and admiring it). Sitting at my desk. Finally , i picked it up and wanted to get the feel of the blade in my hand. Of course after that I wanted to feel the blade against my face. Not necessarly dry shaving. Well I immediately gave myself a nice little slash. First time that I had to use a septic pencil in a long time.

    SORRY,Hope you are ok dude?what kind of razor do you have ,start with a 5/8" very easy to control don't force itBe sure its ready shave sharp,short strokes from your sideburns let it glide if it takes pressure to push the blade its not sharp enough
    Still have minor problems trying to shave left side of face,but should come in time.Do you have any problem getting your face ready to shave?If you have just the basics pre soap,hot towel,before shaving.There are a lot of products out there that will make it easy to shave two products that I use is CREMO and PROVASO items.They have pre-shave items and other stuff ---what a difference and they smell great
