After over 40 years of shaving, my lower neck razor burn is finally clearing up - in fact it's almost totally gone!

I found the right razor for me: a Gillette, English made Tech.

YAY!!!!!!!

Congratulations Charlie! I'm almost there myself. One tiny little area on my lower neck where the hair grows funny is all that's left. I thought I had it beat, but I think I tempted fate with my blade experimentation.

Champagne for your real friends, and
Real pain for your sham friends.

I learned early to avoid ATG on my throat; I sanded down the collars of a couple of decades worth of starched, white shirts, but rarely left the tell-tale tiny dots of dried blood that betrayed a less than attentive shave.  
In the summer of 2013 I started learning HOW to actually operate the Gillette Slim I had been using since early 1966.  Pressure, angle, blade choice, and prep (oh, my prep had been so bad!) all were improved.  I mapped my face and now I can shave against the grain on my throat!  During my working days, I frequently shaved twice a day - now I can easily skip a day (confession - I am retired) without looking like the Monday after a three-day bender.

I find that in my exhuberance for shaving that I sometimes go too far on my throat.  I now have two great products.  both are expensive as hell but work incredibly.  the first was Murad Razor Burn Rescue and now I have found Origins Fire Fighter.  Now I know some will say I shouldn't go so far for a bbs but I am a man and can handle, pain well at least a little Angry.  if a minute drop of a liquid that some chemist slaved over creating for years fixes that burn who am I to ignore his noble efforts.  these two work and I can continue to use product.
