I am on a two day business trip and need to shave tomorrow - I will have to use the hotel, cheapest of the cheap, disposable razor and stock cream soap. Wish me luck. This is the first time I have used a dispo in almost 18 months...

I submit that even if you can't take blades due to TSA restrictions, don't deprive yourself of a nice brush, a favorite soap or cream, and an aftershave of less than 100ml. It's worth it, even for a day or two.

BiC Sensitive disposables. Decent SE, if light and flimsy. Available most places.

Badger Just had a great idea. A ceramic razor blade, it could be taped to the body and pass the metal detector.
Think it would sell... Cool

A: TSA would not be thrilled.
B: Don't help if you forget it at home.

If you live in Hong Kong, and you are on a two-day trip, assuredly you remain in Asia.  On the (slight) chance that you will be in Japan, pick up a pack of the Feather Besty3 razors, and you will get an excellent shave on this trip; leave the remaining ones in your luggage when you return home, and you need not worry about forgetting your razor on your next trip.  (As for the “cheapest of the cheap disposable razor,” some of the modern ones may pleasantly surprise you).

it was Malaysia - it was a no name 2 blade and some non-foaming generic cream - not even a cream soap. Not a bad shave actually, not uber close but it did tug a lot. Left my face sore.

It has been many, many years since I traveled to Japan. JAL gave me a travel kit with every thing I needed. The toothpaste was the strongest mint I've ever used!
The razor was an ok disposable. To the UK, an Irish airline gave a canvas shave kit, even had a sewing kit in it (still use that)…... Hmm They probably don't do that now.
Ahhh….the good old days.

Ceramic is far too brittle to work as a DE blade. Maybe an Artist Club style SE would though
=P

And this last Friday my current business trip got extended by 5 days. So I had to use the hotel barber for a shave. Not bad with a shavette and canned cream but better than looking and feeling scruffy all week.
